My story

[p]On Sunday I'm running a half marathon in aid of Parkinsons uk. [/p][p]Since becoming treasurer of the Oxford branch of Parkinson's, I have seen the varied ways in which Parkinson's affects people and learnt more about some of the amazing research projects being undertaken. My fellow committee members ( many of whom are Parkinson's sufferers) are an incredibly positive and inspirational set of people. They overcome the challenges Parkinson's provides on a daily basis with a positive attitude, and that is a great motivation for me to rise to this challenge.[/p][p]Sadly in the last month, Jem who was responsible for getting me involved as a volunteer for Parkinson's passed away. He was truly inspirational always positive and retained a great sense of humour at all times. He chaired the oxford branch of parkinson's for several years and ensured it grew from strength to strength providing increasing support for Parkinson's sufferers in oxfordshire. My challenge is to try to retain these characteristics during my run ( particularly from mile 10 onwards!) - a small challenge compared to what parkinson's sufferers face day to day.[/p][p] Thank you for your support.
