Unite with thousands of others across the UK and Walk for Parkinson’s at Cardiff Bay .
The event will raise vital funds for the charity Parkinson’s UK, and is one of many walks taking place all over the UK throughout 2018.
Walk for Parkinson’s Cardiff Bay will start at 10.00am. You will walk past historic landmarks and tourist attractions while enjoying spectacular views across Cardiff Bay and the Bristol
Channel. With a choice of distances, this walk is suitable for all ages and abilities. Starting close to the Norwegian Church you can choose to walk 2.5 miles across Cardiff Bay Barrage and back or continue to Penarth and around the marina for a 6.2mile Cardiff Bay circular walk.
Walking and other types of exercise is particularly important for people with Parkinson’s as research shows that two and half hours of exercise a week can help slow progression of symptoms. Exercise also has a positive impact on wellbeing and mental health.
The registration fee is £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s. Everyone who registers will receive a free Parkinson’s UK t-shirt, fundraising pack and at the end of the walk, a finisher’s medal.
All money raised by Walk for Parkinson’s will be used to help find better treatments, and ultimately a cure, as well as providing support and information for the 7,700 people affected by Parkinson’s across Wales.
