Help Parker fight for Parkinson's & Dementia!

13-year-old basketball superstar Parker is back and he needs your help! Early in 2023, Parker raised nearly $2000 for research, and he's back to dribble his much loved basketball again for 30 minutes on and 15 minutes off every hour, for 6 hours on 23 January 2024!

Parker wants to help families battling illness and disease.

Parker is teaming up with THRF Group, and holding his own fundraiser to support vital medical research.

“I want to raise money for Parkinson’s and Dementia because my Uncle Graham was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s and my Grandpa was recently diagnosed with Dementia”.

Support Parker with a kind donation as he dribbles a basketball for 30 minutes on and 15 minutes off every hour, for 6 hours at Urrbrae Agricultural High School on Tuesday 23rd January 2024.

When 13-year-old Parker grows up, his dream is to play basketball for the Adelaide 36ers and become a paramedic to fight for the health of his community.   

Your donation today will help Parker reach his fundraising goal and make a bigger impact in the fight for a cure.

Why does Parker need you? 

Parker is no stranger to fundraising. In 2023 he raised nearly $2,000 for childhood cancer research and he wants to dribble his much loved basketball again for Parkinson’s and Dementia medical research.

Currently in Australia, around 100,000 people are living with Parkinson’s and 10-20 percent of these people are under the age of 50 with Young Onset Parkinson’s. These are not just numbers; these are the faces of our friends, our family members, our neighbours, and our loved ones. 

Dementia includes more than 100 progressive conditions affecting memory, rationality, social skills and much more. Sadly, most people have seen the debilitating affects of dementia on a loved one.

Advances in research for Parkinson’s and Dementia are possible. Support Parker in achieving his challenge and donate to the cause.
