Imagine cycling dusty roads within the Mekong Delta, open to the exquisite and ever-changing scenery of Cambodia, the jewel of Southeast Asia, knowing that with every kilometre you cover, you will be raising funds for Parkinson’s Queensland to continue its important work.

Parkinson’s Queensland is offering you the opportunity to join a group of travel & philanthropy enthusiasts this November, with the launch of the Cambodian Odyssey 2017, a new initiative developed in partnership with Inspired Adventures. This is your opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with Parkinson’s in Queensland, alongside a memorable experience.

During this 11-day adventure you will cycle from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and experience everything Cambodia has to offer by immersing yourself in traditional Khmer culture. The highlights will include captivating sights, ancient temples, classical Khmer art and delicious traditional Cambodian cuisine. Witness the exquisite wonders as you travel countryside, into traditional communities and bustling cities, explore impressive jungle temples and gaze upon the majestic spires of Angkor Wat.

This challenge will take place from the 16th-26th November, 2017.

DO Supports

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life. The average age of diagnosis is 65 years, however younger people can also be diagnosed. This is referred to as Young Onset Parkinson’s. Across Queensland 17,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s. There are approximately eight people directly affected by Parkinson’s for every one person that is diagnosed. Parkinson’s Queensland provides these individuals, their families and the health, aged care and disability sectors with information, support and education for people living with Parkinson’s, Dystonia, Multiple System Atrophy, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Essential Tremor and Restless Leg Syndrome. We work to create better awareness about these conditions among health professionals and community workers as well as the general public. We also help fund research into a cure for Parkinson’s as well as programs to improve the quality of life of those who are affected. Since 1985, Parkinson’s Queensland has helped thousands of Queenslanders in their journey with Parkinson’s and related disorders, not only in the early stages after diagnosis, but throughout the condition’s progression.
