The 60/60 North Norfolk Coastal Walk: Raising funds for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust

 

“Taking a step closer to finding a cure for Parkinson’s”

 

 

Tim Daber was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2016 and was immediately inspired by an item he heard on the radio last year. 

 

“Hearing a Professor of Neurology say that with better funding for research he was confident a cure could be found for Parkinson’s within the lifetime of some people with Parkinson’s was a defining moment for me.”

 

“I was stunned to think that people were suffering simply because of inadequate funding and resolved then and there to do something about it.”

 

Tim came up with the ambitious plan of raising £100,000 in a year by holding a number of events and activities throughout 2018 culminating in a 60 mile sponsored walk along the beautiful North Norfolk Coast Path.

The walk will take Tim and his supporters from Sea Palling to Hunstanton over 4 days between 18th and 21st August and is known as the 60/60 Walk ending at the Hunstanton Tournament.

 

Anyone wanting to join all or part of the walk is welcome to contact Tim for more information by clicking here.

“The idea of walking 60 miles to mark my 60th birthday seemed a fitting way to help reach my fundraising goal”

 

All funds raised are to go to the Cure Parkinson’s Trust* the only UK charity dedicated to finding treatments to slow, stop and reverse the progress of the disease, giving new hope to an estimated 145,000 people in the UK affected by the disease.

 

The year’s events opened with a hugely successful launch party held in February which raised over £15,000.

 

Other planned events include a quiz night to be held by Oundle Tennis Club on 27th April and a stand at Amps Fine Wines spring tasting on 11th May at St Peter’s Church, Oundle. More events, including a children’s walk to be held in May, are in the pipeline.
