Claire Wormald, Claire Steed and Sally Tribe, (aged 42, 44, 44) completed the 26.2 mile challenge in the month that Parkinson’s UK has launched its new fundraising campaign We Won’t Wait, highlighting the urgent need for new and better treatments for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.
Claire Wormald ran a time of 3 hours 48 minutes, Claire Steed finished in 4 hours 10 minutes and Sally ran the race in 3 hours 51 minutes.
Claire Steed’s dad had Parkinson’s and Sally’s father-in-law is living with Parkinson’s.
The trio joined a 235-strong team of runners of all abilities who chose to support the charity.
Parkinson’s UK hopes to raise over £325,000 from the event so it can continue with its vital research work to find better treatments and a cure, and improve the lives of the 127,000 people in the UK who are living with Parkinson’s.
Taking part in a sponsored run, whatever the distance, is a great way to support Parkinson’s UK and their We Won’t Wait campaign. See www.parkinsons.org.uk/running for ways to get involved.
