Find out what some of Cure Parkinson’s supporters have been up to recently.

The London to Brighton bike ride

15 Cure Parkinson’s fundraisers took part in the 2024 London to Brighton charity bike ride, setting off from Clapham Common, London to cycle 54 miles to Brighton’s seafront.

The team donned their Cure Parkinson’s cycling jerseys – with one fundraiser even painting his bike in our signature orange and blue to represent the charity – and together raised a phenomenal £15,000 in support of our research!

Our London to Brighton cyclists:

5.5 rounds (plus an extra hole) of golf

Meanwhile keen golfers Chris, Matt and Elliot completed 100 holes of golf in one day, playing for around 16 hours in total. The three friends decided to take on this challenge in support of our research as Chris’ mum lives with the condition.

The trio set off from Oakdale Golf Club in Harrogate at the frightfully early time of 4am, and walked around 46km (that’s further than a marathon) on the day in order to play each hole.

Walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for Parkinson’s

Oldbury site of science company Syensqo chose to hold their annual sponsored walk in support of Cure Parkinson’s this year as one of their engineers, Gary, was diagnosed with the condition a year ago.

The team walked 25 miles along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in South Wales, setting off from Whitesands Bay near St David’s in glorious sunshine. When the weather took a turn and a three-hour-long downpour ensued, the teams’ spirits weren’t dampened and they powered through to reach their finish line at Broad Haven.

‘The Olympic Mission’ with the Boxall’s

Siblings Megan, Beth, Emily, Katy and Charlie Boxall were inspired by their late uncle (and Cure Parkinson’s co-founder) Tom Isaacs when creating their ‘The Olympic Mission’ (or TOM) challenge. The siblings (plus family and friends) set out in 2021 to complete 51 Olympic sports and raise funds in support of our research, and recently completed their 20th sport; golf!

The Bourton Road Runners

We were delighted when the Bourton-on-the-Water based running club made Cure Parkinson’s their Charity Partner of the Year, and you can get involved in their next running event!

The Bourton Half Marathon will be taking place on Sunday 29 September and there are still some spaces available. So, if you’re a keen runner, why not sign up for this 13.1 mile race through the rolling Cotswolds countryside?
