Melbourne walkers set a new record
A Walk in the Park smashes previous fundraising record
The Melbourne leg of A Walk in the Park has set a new record, raising close to $258,000.
Participants from all over Melbourne braved the wintry conditions to take part in the annual fundraiser, smashing the $225,000 target.
CEO of Parkinson's Victoria, Emma Collin was delighted with the result.
“AWIP was simply stunning this year", she said.
"For so many months leading up to the day, the Parkinson’s community were dedicated to sharing their journeys with their family and friends, raising awareness and funds to support our work. The results exceeded all our expectations.
"This year’s Walk eclipsed all others for us in terms of connection. It set the benchmark for how our community should be wrapped in support and understanding every day of the year.
