[p]Last year my lovely Dad Barney died, after living with Parkinson’s, and Parkinson’s-related dementia, for many years. Thanks to lovely people like you, I’ve raised over £120k for Parkinson’s UK in the last few years but in 2020 I thought that it was only right that we generate a bit more in his memory.[/p][p]I was going to run the Manchester Marathon, the London Marathon, the New York Marathon and more - but then... well, y’know; 2020. BUT now - having trained obsessively throughout lockdown - I’m doing the virtual Great North Run (Sept 13th) and virtual Virgin Money London Marathon (Oct 4th); they’re official, honest![/p][p]So why not chuck me a little bit of cash for Parkinson’s UK?[/p][p]Thanks in advance everyone, and here’s to you, Dad. Love you.[/p][p]Rob Deering x[/p]
