Minimum Sponsorship: There's no minimum sponsorship required to take part in the walk, but we suggest that walkers aim to raise at least £50. The sponsorship raised from the Walk for Parkinson’s – Oxford will go towards funding the research project Investigating the Waste Disposal System in Parkinson’s, taking place in the Pharmacology Department at the University of Oxford. This research project will be looking at fatty molecules called lipids, which play an important role in keeping the brain working properly, to try to identify what type of lipids are involved in Parkinson’s.
