Neurotherapy Practitioner Katy went the distance to raise a fantastic £1,230 for Parkinson's UK last month.

On Sunday 28 May, Katy Brereton took on the 60-mile Ride London Challenge to fundraise for the charity who are fighting to find a cure and improve life for the Parkinson's community.

Katy, who works for Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust's Community Neurological Rehab Team in the West, decided to fundraise for Parkinson's UK because of the connection to her role.

Speaking about her reason for taking on the challenge, she said: “As a neurotherapy practitioner, I see many people, both patients and their families and carers, who inspire me as they navigate their way through life with this challenging condition. I was keen to support the national organisation in their research, but also the local group who offer invaluable support.”

The funds raised by Katy will support the charity's vital work within the local Chichester Group and the national charity.

Talking about the experience, Katy reflected: “Although it was a tough day, I thoroughly enjoyed the training and the event. As I struggled up the longest hill, I reminded myself about the people that had inspired me to enter this ride!

“I am delighted to have exceeded my fundraising target and feel proud that the money I've raised will help support people with Parkinson's and help Parkinson's UK researchers find treatments.”

Well done, Katy!
