Over the next few weeks we’ll be featuring our Bay of Fires participants who will be trekking through Tasmania to raise funds for Parkinson’s. You’ve already met Steve who used his artistic skills to help raise funds.
Today, we’re introducing you to Kevin! Kevin is walking Bay of Fires for his wife, Pauline who has Parkinson’s, and to raise funds towards a cure. Have a read of his story below.
What drives your commitment to a cure for Parkinson’s?
My wife was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2018 so it is personal. I work actively with our local support group and have made several good friends within the group who are PWP or carers. I want to see positive progress towards a cure to help all of us. I also volunteer on the Consumer Advisory Group with Parkinson’s Australia to work on what needs to be done to provide the best outcomes and improve life for those impacted by Parkinson’s Disease.
