Our heroes this week are Tony and Wendy who set off earlier in the year as ‘The Adventure Is’ to traverse the country from Byron Bay to Steep Point – the eastern most point, to the western most point of the country. They’ve had an incredible time on the journey and have so far raised $2,592 for Parkinson’s research.
Tony and two other family members have Parkinson’s, Tony being diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s in 2020. Tony said that the biggest change for him was learning to slow down, he said he’s always had the saying ‘sleep is a waste of time’ but now its a must to let his body recover from a simple day in the garden.
As they approach Steep Point, aiming to arrive on the 13th, we spoke with Tony and Wendy to hear more about this extraordinary journey.
