Run for Parkinson's

Help us find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Funds raised from the Simplyhealth Great North Run will go towards quality services. People with Parkinson's have told us they want high-quality care at every step of their journey with the condition, regardless of where they live. We won't stop until this happens.

We'll support you through your training and fundraising, and be there to cheer you on the day. You'll receive a breathable running vest with iron-on letters and a fundraising pack.
