Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
The staff at CAD 21 and some friends are off again, this time we are cycling from Edinburgh to Tynemouth over a weekend. The total journey should be about 200 miles assuming we don't get too lost!!
My dad has Parkinson's and until he was diagnosed I had no idea how many people suffered from the disease and how little is known about it. A lot of research is being carried out thanks to the charity and in fact my dad has agreed to enter into drug trials and also donate his body for research when he passes away to help future sufferers.
One person in every 500 has Parkinson's. That's about 120,000 people in the UK. "The charity's research is focused upon making the ultimate breakthrough: a cure for Parkinson's and a time when no one is affected by the symptoms of the condition."
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the Parkinson's charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
So please donate now every little helps no matter how much.
