On Sunday 2 October, 32 Cure Parkinson’s supporters took part in the epic TCS London Marathon, raising £127,000 to help find a cure for Parkinson’s

Our incredible runners came from all over the UK to join us at this iconic event, and some even came from much further afield, travelling from the US and Australia!

Every Cure Parkinson’s runner had their own unique reason for taking part: Nick England ran in honour of his adventure seeking brother-in-law Simon, who has lived with the condition for the past 24 years; Zoe Molyneux took part in her second marathon this year in support of her dad; and Jon Quy completed the race as a tribute to his late father and, making the event even more poignant for him, the marathon took place two days after the 10th anniversary of his father’s passing. Team Cure runner Emily Higgins, who ran in memory of her late grandfather, said:

I had a fantastic day and loved every moment of it! It brings me such joy and pride to have run the London Marathon for Cure Parkinson’s in memory of my Grandpa.”

Another of our incredible ‘Team Cure’ runners, Joe Gregory, added a distinctive spin to his marathon by choosing to walk the 26.2 mile route whilst doing keepy-uppies the entire way! Joe was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2019, but hasn’t let the condition dampen his love for football or active lifestyle; he previously completed 13,410 consecutive keepy-uppies in 2020 and walked from Reading to London juggling a football in 2021, all to raise funds and awareness for us.

Cure Parkinson’s would like to say a huge thank you to all our phenomenal runners who have raised such an amazing amount at this year’s London Marathon; your support will help us continue to fund our crucial research to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s, and will move us closer to finding a cure.
