Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

September 3rd 2023 is bonkers challenge day for me! I am going to run, or if needs be hike or crawl the 13 or so miles along the Pilgrims Way between Wye and Canterbury in honour of my fabulous friend Sarah Frow – and Sarah has decided to come too, leading the way as always!

It will be almost 2 years since Sarah’s diagnosis of Young-onset Parkinson’s (YOPD) and it isn’t as rare as you may think, 1 in 10 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s are classed as having YOPD (under the age of 50)

I want to help Sarah increase awareness and understanding of YOPD so that everyone affected has access to the right treatment and support. To this end I am fundraising for the ‘Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy’ (PCIT for short) where Sarah not only challenges her own condition but also helps others with this cruel disease, inspiring them to keep active and providing unparalleled understanding and support.

I specifically chose a running challenge because Sarah is slowing the progression of her symptoms through running and exercise. She continues to set herself goals and push her body to extremes and so I will try to do likewise in the hope of raising a few pounds – feel free to join me!

Please note this is not a formally organised event, but anyone and everyone is invited to run or walk the route in part or in full and join me for a glass of something at the end!

Parkinson’s, not just an old person’s disease.

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 charity (Univeristy of Kent who fund PCIT). So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
