What was the highlight of the walk?
The highlights of the walk was most certainly the beginning and the end. At the start, Dad gave us an overview of Parkinsons, what it is, how it affects him and what the symptoms are. It’s always fascinating to learn about and I know the girls were incredibly interested. Another highlight was at the end, finally finishing that 20 km in the pouring rain!
The main challenge was the rain, it started pouring down around the 10km Mark but luckily we all made it laughable and kept going!
How did you find the experience of fundraising?
Overall I’ve loved organising this fundraiser. Although it’s amazing to raise this immense amount of funds, it’s more important to me to raise awareness. So many friends and family contacted me advising they had relatives in the same position, showing it’s so much more prevalent than we realise. I can’t wait to do another one and continuously raise awareness surrounding Parkinson’s Disease.
