Parkinson's UK going global

Next week, for the first time ever, the 2nd World Parkinson Congress (WPC) comes to the UK. Hosted in Glasgow, the WPC provides an international forum for the latest scientific discoveries and medical practices for people affected by Parkinson's.

One of the main aims of the congress is to create a global movement to help make Parkinson's a health, social and economic priority around the world.

We're always really keen to raise awareness of Parkinson's across the world and join with others to help us find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by the condition.

If you're not able to come to the congress, we'll be keeping you up to date through this blog, our website and on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Also on a global theme, our passionate fundraisers continue to show their support by taking part in overseas challenges throughout the year. As this blog is being written, we have a group of 20 dedicated supporters on our Trek China, walking along the country's spectacular Great Wall to raise vital funds for Parkinson's UK.

And we have an exciting new line up of challenges for 2011, including Trek Kilimanjaro and Cycle Cuba.

If you've recently taken part in one of our overseas challenges, please share your experiences with us.

And if you'd like more information on taking part in one of our 2011 challenges, or you'd like to support us in other ways, get in touch with our Events team at
