Call to step out into the fresh air and help beat Parkinson's Disease

Solihull Editorial 2nd Jun, 2021   0

PEOPLE in Solihull are being urged to sign up to a Walk for Parkinson’s to help fund vital support for people affected by the condition.

Charity Parkinson’s UK has launched its annual Walk for Parkinson’s series, which was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic and this year, there are three ways to take part:

Join a socially distanced organised walk in your area.

Walk for Parkinson’s 66 mile challenge: complete 66 miles of walking in July

Walk for Parkinson’s Your Way: walk two or six miles wherever you are over September 25-26.

The money raised by Walk for Parkinson’s will help transform the way the charity provides information and support to people with Parkinson’s, and the people in their lives.

This year, thanks to the Frank and Evelyn Brake Connect Fund, sponsorship will be matched pound for pound, doubling the impact for people affected by Parkinson’s.

Organised walks taking place include Sutton Park, Birmingham on Sunday, July 11.

The charity says if you know 66 people, chances are you know someone who knows Parkinson’s, hence their Walk for Parkinson’s 66 by walking 66 miles in July.
