Weʼre raising £3,600 to Help Fund Vital Exercise Classes to help slow down the progression of Parkinson's Symptoms

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A regular exercise routine can help you maintain your abilities, strengthen your muscles, increase mobility in your joints and build up your general health and fitness.
Making exercise part of your regular routine also provides a sense of achievement and can reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
Recent research in animal models of Parkinson's has shown that exercise seems to protect the dopamine-producing nerve cells that are lost in Parkinson's, helping them work better and survive for longer.
This could potentially slow down the progression of Parkinson's - something no current treatment can do.
Research into the effect of exercise in people with Parkinson's has shown some promising results, including improvements in mobility and balance. But as yet, the long-term benefits of exercise are not fully understood.
At Peterborough Parkinson’s we offer our members several exercise classes & they can be adapted to suit abilities.
Classes & room hire cost £600 a month and we would like to be able to continue to offer these vital exercise classes free of charge to our members & to look for other classes that will also slow down the progression of Parkinson's
