Tulip Fun Run raises money for Cambridge branch of Parkinson's UK
Following World Parkinson’s Day on April 11, more than 70 runners helped to fundraise last weekend at the sixth annual Tulip Fun Run for the Cambridge branch of nationwide charity, Parkinson’s UK.
On Sunday (April 14), Mark Goodridge, Parkinson’s UK Board of Trustees chair, started the run from the David Rayner Building at Scotsdales Garden Centre, where the branch meets every month and where the run also finished.
Annabel Bradford, volunteer publicity officer at the Cambridge Branch of Parkinson’s UK, said: “We took more than £900 on the day, in donations from the people who were running, but we don’t yet have the total of how much we raised overall because we haven’t got the JustGiving details and the sponsorship forms.”
Winner of the race was William Howling in a time of 26min 30sec, while the fastest woman was William’s mother, Rebecca, with a time of 35min 37sec.
The next Parkinson’s-related event taking place in Cambridge is the Gretschen Amphlet Memorial Lecture on Tuesday, April 30 and is free to attend.
