My story

[p]Hey there lovely people,[/p][p]This year I'm taking on the London Marathon - all twenty six point two mother-flipping miles of it! I'm doing it for a number of reasons, hopefully these can persuade you to donate some of those hard-earned pounds/dollars/deutschmark/yen to a very worthy cause.[/p][p]The last two years Paz and I have gone to watch Lou Sweeney run the London Marathon. Cheering Lou on and seeing her smash it both times made us both feel very proud of her and has inspired me to attempt the same. It also feels right to try and get a marathon under my belt before I'm 30 - eeek![/p][p]Lou and I will both be running for the [url=https://www.cureparkinsons.org.uk/]The Cure Parkinson's Trust[/url], which was founded in 2005 by the late Tom Issacs. Tom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1995 when he was just 26 years old. Determined to conquer the disease for everyone living with it, he set about walking entire coastline of Great Britain (a whopping 4,500 miles!) and raised £350,000 for PD research. This gave him the platform to set up CPT and continue the phenomenal work to find a cure that defined his life. Sadly Tom passed away in May last year, but his determined vision still remains and continues to inspire others to join the team and fight on.[/p][p]I've seen people in my own life who are suffering from Parkinson's deteriorate over the last few years. The impact it has on their quality of living and functioning is an everyday struggle; but I've also seen the huge difference that the treatment they receive makes. Anything I can do that helps to facilitate Parkinson's research to stop, slow or reverse the disease will be incredibly worthwhile.[/p][p]This London Marathon will also be a bit more special for me personally as it falls exactly on my birthday (22nd April). If anyone is able to make it down on the day, we'll be going for 1 or 2 (...or 26?) celebratory beers after. Needless to say, anyone who donates I will certainly owe a pint to.[/p][p]See you at the finish line.[/p][p]Luke (pj) x[/p][p][img]https://media.giphy.com/media/l2Sqc3POpzkj5r8SQ/giphy.gif[/img][/p]
