Alison Anderson and Claire Lehman, who are also living with Parkinson’s, were part of a group of five who started out slightly earlier to spread the journey across 10 days.
Meeting the three other people with Parkinson’s was incredibly emotional for me. Knowing some of the specific struggles we had shared, the balance problems, fatigue, sleepless nights despite being exhausted… The challenge of trying to optimise our medication with so many additional variables and an unspoken understanding of the daily trials and tribulations of living with a progressive neurological condition, as well a deep respect for each other, pride and gratitude that we were able to tackle this challenge and help to raise awareness and much needed funds for Cure Parkinson’s.Alison Anderson
Cure Parkinson’s is extremely grateful to this amazing group of cyclists for taking on the monumental Raid Alpine challenge. We are inspired by their sheer determination to keep going in spite of the heat, exhaustion, blisters, and more besides.
And to top it all, they have raised £150,000 and the total continues to climb..!
You can still donate too!
