We have to say a BIG thank you to all the fantastic people who ran, walked, rode, played tennis or even climbed for us, plus not forgetting those who have supported our events over the years.

We hold amazing events throughout the year. Not only do they help us to raise funds for research into finding a cure for Parkinson’s, they are also a great way for supporters to get involved with some very special activities (and a great way for some to keep fit!). Have a look below at some upcoming and past fundraisers….

    I came to support Parkinson’s UK after a friend of mine (Sarah Webb) of over 20 years was diagnosed with the condition while only in her 30s. Sarah co-founded the SLYPN (South London Younger Parkinson’s Network) in conjunction with Parkinson’s UK and I was inspired by her determination to fight the disease, to help others in the same plight and to raise funds to help find a cure. I want to help in any way I can with that on-going battle.
