Maura was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2013, aged 64. To mark her 70th birthday in 2019 she decided to climb the 12,389 ft high Mount Fuji in Japan, and in doing so, raise funds and awareness for Cure Parkinson’s. Maura not only raised an incredible amount for Cure Parkinson’s, but with press coverage in local and national Irish newspapers, and even a video interview with the BBC, Maura has gone above and beyond to raise awareness of Parkinson’s too.
Maura won our Fundraiser of the Year award in 2019. Find out more.
