Pause 4 Parkinson’s is a great opportunity to bring together friends, family and your local community. What starts out as a small gathering can often overflow into a huge swell of support from those around you as Sarah Welk found while organising her P4P event this year. Her family event quickly escalated into a jumping castle for kids, live music, sausage sizzle along with raffles, a silent and live auction, ALL of which was donated. In the end, Sarah and her family raised over $10,000 towards a cure for Parkinson’s. What a fantastic result from a generous community!
What Drives Your Commitment to find a cure for Parkinson’s?
Since my Dad was diagnosed it has been a cause very close to my whole family’s heart. My Dad was always a positive person that was always going something, I never thought anything’s could stop him. After a few years of having Parkinson’s, I have seen it take the drive for life out of both his eyes and his body. I would love nothing more than for my dad and all other Parkinson suffers to have control of their movement and emotions back.
