It is great to see the enthusiasm and team spirit of all who are joining together to complete this challenge and we are really grateful to all who are walking or running. We rely so heavily on events like this to fund our vital support services and research projects and I hope it will feel good to know that each step on the treadmill will be helping to make a difference to the life of someone affected by Parkinson’s.”
