|P4P host: Kathleen
P4P event name: Pedal 4 Parkinson’s
“I am so excited by the amazing support of my event so fair – I set my target and just had to raise it straight away! I just want to find a cure for my dad.”
|P4P host: Katrina
P4P event name: Dance 4 Parkinson’s
“Dance takes you away from your everyday, it makes you feel good, special, as if anything is possible. You leave your problems behind when you dance. So when I began to teach dance to people with Parkinson’s I saw some significant changes take place. Seeing people enjoy their movement and the music, leaving the class with more energy than when they arrived, looking lighter and happier.”
|P4P host: Sheenagh
P4P event name: Back to the 80’s 4 Parkinson’s
“With Parkinson’s we need to keep moving, so by “shaking “it down and dancing back to the 80’s I’m going to raise money for research”.
|P4P host: Bev and Kelly
P4P event name: Bright Sparks Wine and Cocktail evening
“Don’t be afraid – just organise an event, start a conversation and see where it takes you! By being involved I feel less of a victim and more in charge of my life”.
