Headteacher Runs Marathon for Parkinson's Charity

Posted on 19/04/2016

Headteacher Runs Marathon 19.04.16 2National Parkinson’s Awareness Week 18th to 24th April

On Sunday 17th April I ran the Brighton marathon in 3 hours and 58 minutes. Although I run regularly this was my first attempt at the marathon distance. It was an amazing, challenging experience that will remain with me for a long time. The main drive for the run was to raise money for the Parkinson’s charity. Parkinson’s is mostly thought of as a condition that people get when they’re older – but younger people can have it too. One in every 500 will get Parkinson’s and there is currently no cure. By donating to the charity you will help in the hope of one day finding a cure.
