Walk for Parkinson's 66 mile challenge

My Activity Tracking

My target 66 mi

I’m taking part in the Walk for Parkinson’s 66 mile challenge because every step connects everyone with Parkinson’s.

By sponsoring me you’ll be helping to transform information and support services for people with Parkinson’s. And every pound I raise will be matched by the Frank and Evelyn Brake Connect Fund, doubling the impact!

Together, we can make sure everyone with Parkinson’s, and the people in their lives, get the information and support they need.

We did it!

Sunday 1st Aug
Actually we did 100 miles, not 66. What's more we raised over £3,300 pounds - which adds up to more than £6,600 because every £ is matched by the Frank and Evelyn Brake Connect Fund. Thanks so much for your incredibly generous donations - now Cabbage says it's time for a lie-down.

Logging my walks

Sunday 4th Jul
I've linked the MapMyFitness app to this page to record my walks but it's been a bit scratchy so far. I'm further along than 3 miles, honest! Here's evidence of Sunday morning's walk.

My 66 mile challenge

Thursday 1st Jul
Now it sounds like a long way - but I'm confident I can cover 66 miles in July. After all my early walk with Cabbage each morning is around 1.5 miles so I will have done around three quarters of my daily target before breakfast. Look out on Instagram (@rorycellan) and Twitter (@ruskin147)  for regular updates
