China trek success

The participants from Trek China have been back in the UK for just over two weeks and have so far raised an incredible £119,000!

Karen Swindells, 49 from Cheshire, has Parkinson's and was one of the 36 people who took part in the nine day trek along the Great Wall of China.

Karen was diagnosed 18 months ago, and told us about the positive impact the trip has had on her. Meeting other people with Parkinson's along the way and visiting China was a life changing experience.

Karen said she hoped the money raised would help improve the lives of people like her, living with Parkinson’s. And it is because of people like Karen that we can continue our work supporting everyone affected by Parkinson's.

You can see photos of our team in China on our Flickr site and if you want to join in the fun, take a look at other challenges coming up.
