Julie and Luke are running again for Parkinsons
Yes, it's that time of year again, and as usual, we're running again to raise funds for the Parkinson's Society in Canada. The run is on Saturday 8 September. As usual, I'm going to try and run the whole 5K, avoiding being overtaken by any walkers.
This time last year, I was optimistic about possible breakthroughs in research. I still am, though there is still nothing on the near horizon. "Re-purposing" existing drugs approved for other diseases, and advances in a possible stem cell therapy still make me optimistic that there will be a possible cure being found in time to help me. It's a race against time - and until a cure is found, I will keep exercising, and taking the pills (I should rattle, the number of pills I get through in a week)!. I keep on participating in any research studies / trials that I can.
Thanks for supporting us again,
Julie & Luke
