Up until very recently, when asked if I ran, I would answer, 'For the bus and final boarding calls.'
Then 6 months ago a friend asked if I would join her in running the Royal Parks Half in support of Parkinson's, a disease afflicting her father and so many others. Surprisingly I said yes. Then Pascal volunteered to run alongside me and since then we've been training and running together to prepare.
This is my first foray into raising money for a cause and I hope you will support us and, in turn, The Cure Parkinson's Trust.
The Cure Parkinson's Trust is the only organisation in the UK solely dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's. CPT was founded in 2005 by four people living with the condition and so it takes a patient-centric approach to funding innovative projects and inspirational scientists to modify the progression of Parkinson's and to find a cure.At CPT, we believe we are closer than ever to new treatments. We are committed to funding research that for the first time will slow, stop or even reverse the progression of Parkinson's.
