Labour Day 21km for Parkinson's

By Shannon Addison

For my 21st run in lockdown I'm going to run 21kms to raise money for a Parkinson's cure.  (Not feeling 21 so it may be a real Labour Day labour).

I'm not sure what the clinical term is, but Parkinson's SUCKS THE BIG ONE.  Our Dad copes with it like an absolute ledge, but we have seen how  cruel and unpredictable this disease is on a daily basis. 

With 1 in 500 people suffering from Parkinson's it is really common, so I'd love to do something practical with this lockdown and raise a few bucks for the researchers who are trying to crack the cure.

Thank you everyone!

The run is done. There was rain, blisters, and a few sore muscles today but all 3 made the 21km and in good time.  So blown away to have more than doubled our target, thanks everyone for your support of this cause.  Xxx S, L & E
