[p]THE CURE PARKINSON'S CUP HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK* and will be rescheduled when possible. Please read the statement for more information: [url=https://twitter.com/parkinsonscup/status/1238388875170664448]https[/url]://twitter.com/parkinsonscup/status/1238388875170664448[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]We are Ian, Joe, John, Karl, Keith, Les, Martin, Ryan and Nick[/b]. [/p][p]Nine guys united by their love of football and their desire to fight through regular exercise the disease that brought them together in the first place: [b]Parkinson’s.[/b][/p][p]On [b]19[/b] [b]April[/b] [b]2020[/b] we will be competing as [url=http://www.fightingfitfootball.co.uk][b]Fighting Fit Football[/b][/url] in the UK’s very first football tournament for people with Parkinson’s - the [url=https://www.facebook.com/cureparkinsonscup][b]Cure[/b] [b]Parkinson’s Cup[/b][/url]. We will be one of 16 teams of Parkinson’s battlers from across the UK, Europe and the US who will compete in this “World Cup” of Parkinson’s football.[/p][p]Our goal is to raise funds for the [url=https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk][b]Cure Parkinson’s Trust[/b][/url][b] [/b]to[b] [/b]help them in their goal to find a much needed cure for the disease, and we need your help and generosity to do this. Together we can give Parkinson’s the boot![/p][p][b]The facts[/b]:[/p][p]There are around 150,000 people in the UK with Parkinson’s, of whom 10% are estimated to be of working age. We are part of that 10% and we want to make a positive difference to our lives and the lives of the people who love and care for us, our family and friends. [/p][p]Exercise is a great way to help our symptoms but currently there is no cure for this degenerative disease. Much of the medication prescribed to people with Parkinson’s hasn’t changed substantially in the last 50 years and its effectiveness can reduce over time once prescribed. [/p][p][b]The Cure Parkinson's Trust[/b] is a leading Parkinson's medical research charity totally committed to slowing, halting and reversing the condition and ultimately improving the lives of those affected by the disease. [/p][p]By making a donation you will help fund their ground breaking work and potentially help find a cure for the millions affected by the disease across the globe.[/p][p][b]Thank you for your donation and support and for sharing with your friends, family and network. Each and every donation could make a positive difference to our lives.
