In March 2015, my girlfriends sister, Kate, will trek the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal in aid of Parkinsons Disease Research. We aim to raise €5,000 between the three of us in order to get her ther.
Firstly I suppose I should let you know a little bout Kate and why we are doing this. Well basically she's my girlfriends sister and thats I got dragged into all of this. Willingly of course. Simple as really. Now for the reason why? My girlfriend's uncle was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease not long ago. As a result, his wife Becky embarked on this exact trip last November after raising a huge amount of money and awareness for the cause. Inspired by her efforts, and by their uncle's relentlessly upbeat spirit, Kate decided to follow in her footsteps. Literally.
So here we are. We've a lot of money to raise but we're enthusiastic and optimistic that we can do it. We have plenty of ideas and fun events in the pipeline and we hope you'll all be there to help us! There'll be plenty of laughs, cakes, pints and cups of tea involved so watch this space!!
So please help us get here there and DONATE!! Every single euro, no scrap that, every single CENT helps get us closer to raising enough money and this in turn will go towards researching new treatments and hopefully discovering a cure for this horrible disease.
Thanks so much!
