Perak Parkinson’s Association holding ‘U Care, U Give and U Walk’ Charity Walkathon

By KT Leong

The Perak Parkinson’s Association (PPA) will be holding a Charity Walkathon this Sunday at Seri Botani.

As per our previous article, this walkathon is to help raise funds for the PPA to continue their care and support for people living with Parkinson’s and their caretakers. As they only charge a subscription of RM2 per month, which is not even the price of a regular cup of ‘kopi’ these days, the PPA depends on donations and fundraising to cover their expenses.

With the nation entering into the endemic phase of Covid-19, the PPA can now safely invite everyone to come and support them this Sunday, on November 27, at Bandar Seri Botani Eco Park 1, Ipoh, Perak. The walkathon will begin at 7 am.

Those who wish to go the extra mile (or 5 km in this case) can contact Ms. Julie Loh at 014-3027893 to become participants, with an entry fee of RM60 per participant. If you’re not inclined for a long Sunday walk but still want to support the PPA, you can still call her at this number.

  1. I was diagnosed of Parkinson’s disease. After years on medications, symptoms worsened with tremors on my right hand, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness and loss of speech. Fortunately last year, i learnt about Health Herbs Clinic and their Parkinson’s disease alternative treatment ( ww w. healthherbsclinic. com ), the Parkinson’s disease treatment made a great difference, most of my symptoms including tremors, weakness and others gradually disappeared. I improved greatly over the 6 months treatment, it’s been a years since the treatment, i have no symptoms. I have a very good quality of life and a supportive family!

  2. Hi Catherine, thanks for your comment. And we’re glad to hear you’re doing better.
