Message from John;

In 2021 I undertook the 100km challenge with my MSFT work colleagues. It was a great 24 hr event that taught me a lot about myself. I was disappointed not to finish in under 24hrs, I knew I would want another crack at it.

For 2023 I've onboarded Tom, Olly and Tom, 3 of my lifelong friends to take on the 100km continuous challenge for Parkinson's UK. Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson's. A brain condition that can turn lives upside down and leave a future of uncertainty. 

My mum was diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years ago and I've witnessed the impact it has on someone's life. Parkinson's never gives a person a days rest and continuously reminds them that life will never be the same. I am hopeful this small contribution will, one day, help Parkinson's UK find a cure.

As a team we are aiming to walk continuously for no more than 20hrs to complete the 100km course. Walking 5km per hour doesn't sound like much but I can assure you its not an easy challenge. Hopefully you will be able to sponsor us :-) Every £ we raise will be matched by my company so its double bubble for all.

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.
