Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson's. Almost 30 years ago my Dad was one of them.  Parkinson's has taken a lot from him and his family but Parkinson's UK is leading the work to find a cure and it is closer than ever.

When I was embarking on my lengthy rehabilitation from my second cruciate ligament surgery in three years I was asked by my physio what my goal was at the end of it. A contract with Hibs seemed unlikely so I settled on trying to run a marathon in aid of Parkinson's research. Please help me make all the pain worthwhile...

Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It gets worse over time and there’s no cure. Yet. Funding research into the most promising treatments, we’re getting closer to a cure. Until then, we're improving life for people with Parkinson’s, and the people in their lives. Together we'll find a cure.
