My story

[p]There are two key parts to my decision to take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon.[/p][p]Firstly, and most importantly, I'm doing this for charity. A charity with a purpose that's close to me and my wider family. I'm running for [url=https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk/]The Cure Parkinson's Trust[/url]. My Dad suffers with Parkinson's, it's a nasty condition that stops my Dad and many others from being able to live their lives to the fullest. [/p][p]In 2018 around 145,000 people in the UK alone were living with Parkinson’s (1 person in every 350). This is expected to increase by 18% by the year 2025 and is set to almost double by 2065. It is estimated that 1 person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s during their lifetime.[/p][p]As you can see, there's a need to increase research into Parkinson's to try and uncover a cure. [/p][p]As Tom Isaacs - late President and Co-founder of The Cure Parkinson's Trust (1968 - 2017) said:[/p][p]"I continue to be hugely optimistic about the future. We will conquer Parkinson’s!"[/p][p]My second reason is a little more selfish. About 18 months ago, I was struggling to run just 5k without feeling like my lungs were going to explode. I've got fitter, little by little and now I can just about say that I enjoy my running. It's good for both my physical and mental fitness. However, a Half Marathon is a stretch and a personal challenge for me.[/p][p]To be able to combine a personal challenge and raise much-needed funds for an excellent charity is a good idea. [/p][p]I'd be very appreciative if you are able to donate anything towards a very worthy cause, any amount no matter how small would be most welcome![/p][p]Thank-you![/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p]
