Last year we had to cancel Walk for Parkinson’s because of the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic isn’t over, but we can get through this, together.
Take part in Walk for Parkinson’s in 2021 to get outside, connect with the Parkinson’s community and make a difference.
Together, we can transform information and support services for people with Parkinson’s.
Every step connects everyone with Parkinson’s.
Why Walk for Parkinson's?
You can help transform our information and support services, so we can help more people when they need us.
“I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in January 2017, and my symptoms mean I have difficulty swallowing and controlling my tremor, which has resulted in a loss of confidence. I signed up to the Walk for Parkinson’s as I’ve found that exercise helps with my Parkinson’s symptoms.”
Double your impact
Every pound you raise will be matched, pound-for-pound, by the Frank and Evelyn Brake Connect Fund, up to £200,000. Raise £50 from your walk and £100 will go to help make sure no one misses out on the information and support they need.
Volunteer at Walk for Parkinson's
Volunteering is a great way to show your support for Walk for Parkinson's. Inspiring walkers to go the extra mile and celebrating their success, volunteers are the driving force behind each walk.
