Story

My Brothers and I are running the Birmingham International Marathon in Oct 2017 in aid of Parkinson's UK, a charity with duel roles of funding research to combat Parkinson's and secondly to change attitudes towards the disease.

Our Father was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011 and it has been a steep learning curve for him and us to understand & adjust to the great change in all our lives, especially our Mother who provides full care.

Pat Davis has always had a sporty life and still swims and walks as often as he can - As a younger man he completed the Birmingham Marathon last time the full event was hosted in our great city over 20 Years Ago!

With that it just made sense to challenge ourselves to complete this event as a nod to our Father's achievements and a fantastic opportunity to raise some money for a much deserving charity.
