Running for people with Parkinson's

In the current economic climate, we have to think of new, innovative ways to raise money for people with Parkinson's. At the moment, many charities are struggling to fill places in major races, such as the Great North Run

But running events are still a popular way of fundraising for the Parkinson's Disease Society. Last year, around 1,300 runners took part in events across the UK and their combined efforts raised an incredible £580,000.

In recognition of this, and to celebrate our 40th Anniversary, we decided to organise an exclusive Parkinson's Disease Society running event this year. The first ever PDS10K will be held at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham on Sunday 22 November 2009 and you can register to take part online right now.

Fundraising events like these are fantastic to be a part of because everyone is coming together for the same reason, to show their support for people with Parkinson's and to help us continue our work.

But events like these are not the only way you can help and every contribution is valued. If you're looking for inspiration on how you can get involved with the Parkinson's Disease Society and show your support, why not take a look at the support us page on our website?
