Essential Projects MD raises £1500 for Parkinsons UK

Essential Projects Managing Director, Eliot Saxton took part in the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Marathon on Sunday 29th September and has raised over £1500 for Parkinsons UK

Running alongside 10,000 other participants, Eliot, completed the 13-mile course in 2 hours 13 minutes.

The race starts and finishes at the Victoria Embankment in Nottingham and along the way, the route takes in iconic views, including the Castle, the famous Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Nottingham Forest F.C. and Notts County F.C.

Eliot originally set out to raise £1000 for the charity via his own JustGiving page but succeeded in raising the £1500 with the help of 3 fellow runners, Adrian Saxton, Anna Wild and Peter Wild.  

Commenting on the race, Eliot said “It was a tough run due to the windy wet weather, but I hope the money we have managed to raise will help the individuals and families who have to deal with this terrible disease on daily basis.”

Parkinson’s is a brain condition that gets worse over time. It happens when there is a lack of dopamine in the brain and causes involuntary body shakes and tremors, slow and less co-ordinated movement and muscle stiffness or rigidity.

Parkinsons UK was founded in 1969, but today the organisation includes a dynamic network of expert staff, health and social care professionals, volunteers and researchers, who work together to improve life for everyone living with Parkinson’s in the UK and to bring forward better treatments and a cure.
