Congratulations to our skydivers, runners and walkers
17 April 2012
and congratulations to all our fundraisers who took part in events
across the UK at the weekend, in the lead up to Parkinson's Awareness Week 2012 this week.
Events included the Brighton and
Paris Marathons, our Quayside Walk in Newcastle, Stroll Stormont in
Belfast and Colne Valley Walk in
We also had a 28-strong team of skydivers jumping out of a plane at 10,000
We hope to have raised £25,000 from the event at Netheravon
Airfield in Wiltshire.
Niki Taylor (pictured right) ran in the Brighton
Marathon for us:
"My father had Parkinson's - he
passed away in February so this challenge has meant so much and I
know he would have been so proud."
Vital funds towards finding a cure
Paul Jackson-Clark, our fundraising director, comments:
"Without the help and dedication of our fundraisers, our vital work to find a cure and improve the
lives of those living with Parkinson's would not be possible."
This year in Parkinson's Awareness Week we're focusing on our
mission to find a cure for Parkinson's.
