Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, for which there is currently no cure. It is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. In the UK, approximately 145,000 people are already living with Parkinsons.
Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over, but younger people can get it too.
People in Cambridge can sign up to Walk for Parkinson’s to help fund vital support for people affected by the condition - and this year, you can also take part virtually.
Charity Parkinson’s UK has launched its annual Walk for Parkinson’s series, which was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This year’s Walk for Parkinson’s features organised walks across the UK as well as virtual walking challenges.
Organised walks taking place include Wandlebury Country Park on Saturday 25 September . Participants have the choice of taking on a 1.5 mile or 4.5 mile walk.
There is also the option to take part in Walk for Parkinson’s Your Way. You choose your own course, when you do it and who you walk with over the weekend of 25 and 26 September 2021. Participants can choose from two distances - 2 or 6 miles - depending on what suits you best.
The money raised by Walk for Parkinson’s will help transform the way Parkinson’s UK 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.
