Will you run … or walk … the Brussels 20km this spring
in support of Parkinson’s disease research?
We would love you and your friends to join us!
When Parkinson’s disease makes your body shake uncontrollably and then freeze unexpectedly, walking … let alone running … becomes a dangerous endurance ‘sport’! But Patrick Demoucelle and many other Parkinson’s patients are determined to cross the finish line of the Brussels 20k on May 29th to help fund a cure for this debilitating condition affecting 40,000 people in Belgium.
Everyone is welcome to join! Will you?
As part of the ‘Run for Parkinson’ team – which is one of the biggest groups at the event and in past years has numbered as many as 400 runners – you’ll help to support vital medical research with your fundraising efforts and we’ll help you to achieve your own personal goal.
In addition to our fabulous ‘Run for Parkinson’ t-shirt, you’ll benefit from:
- training tips from our running coach;
- an open invitation to join a pre-event long run;
- an easy-to-use, personal online fundraising page that you can customise to raise awareness among your family, friends and colleagues
- a convenient place next to the start line to safely leave your belongings;
- a guided pre-run warm-up routine;
- the support and encouragement of your team mates and our volunteers;
- healthy snacks and drinks before and after the run;
- an even greater sense of accomplishment and pride.
It is quick and easy to join the ‘Run for Parkinson’ team! When registrations open (late January 2022), fill in the short registration form and pay 50 euros and then set up and share your personal fundraising page. Done! In the meantime, why not encourage your friends and colleagues to join in too! The more the better!
*** COVID 19: Please note that if this event has to be cancelled due to the coronavirus, you will be given the option to have your registration fee reimbursed or to donate it to the charity.
