Team story

[p]May 2018, I finally went to see the doctor. I'd been struggling with using my right hand for quite a while and thought I'd done too much yoga(!!) The doctor told me I had Parkinson's (PD). First I cried. Then I decided that I'd be the healthiest person ever! Exercise is the best treatment for PD so I tried out the indoor rowing machine when I was on holiday. It was fun. Then I decided to learn how to row on the river. That's even more fun :) Although a little difficult with one hand that doesn't do what I want![/p][p]My good friend Izzy told me about her adventurous friend, Isaac, who was rowing across the Atlantic. Isaac said that we should all row down the Thames from Abingdon to Chiswick for charity and so the seed of an idea became an adventure for us :) Our team is growing from the original 3 to 9: 8 rowing plus a cox.[/p][p]Words cannot express how grateful I am to this team of amazing people who will be sharing this adventure with me. And of course to all of you who kindly make a donation to cure PD. THANK YOU :) [/p]
