Its been almost 5 years since the passing of our very dear uncle, Richard Bennett from complications related to Parkinson's disease. He was an inspiring person who gave his life to so many, as a friend, teacher, uncle and brother. As part of celebrating my 50th year, I want to simply say a big 'thank you' to all those people who have touched my life in a special way, like my uncle. This run is for you!!! I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research create the world we want to see.
