Paul pedals for Parkinson's: 3,106 miles down, 7,144 to go

Paul Smith's China challenge begins
This week one of our fundraisers Paul Smith, 36, from Forest Row, East Sussex, completed the first 3,106 miles of his epic cycling challenge from China to the UK.

We want to congratulate Paul on this fantastic achievement and wish him the very best of luck for the remainder of his amazing 10,250-mile challenge, which is raising money to support our vital work.

Paul began his journey on 6 March from Fujian, China and is due to arrive at the finish line in East Sussex at the beginning of October. He is cycling for his Dad, Mike, 65, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1994.

The next leg of Paul’s challenge will see him cycle into Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany and France, before arriving back home. 

Sponsor Paul online and follow his progress on his blog or via Twitter.

Are you inspired by Paul’s story? Why not join us one of our overseas events later this year. Our intrepid fundraisers will be trekking across Peru and Jordan, as well as cycling from Vietnam to Cambodia.

Or if you’d prefer like to stay a little closer to home, join us on our Pedal for Parkinson’s cycling events across the UK this summer.

We couldn’t do our vital work without the support of all of our fantastic fundraisers – from cycling across China, to cake sales in Coventry. Every single penny raised helps us in our work to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.
