Running for Parkinson’s – We’re MADe For It!

general 16 March 2018

Our warehousing experts have banded together in a fundraising effort for Parkinson’s UK, by stepping up their A(KW) game and entering the Manchester 10k…

For the boys of AKW’s warehousing department, choosing a charity to dedicate their efforts towards in the Great Manchester Run was second nature; considering our inspirational Chairman Tony's plight, it had to be Parkinson’s.  

 ‘By running in the Parkinson’s attire, we hope to help spread their message through our visibility in the race. Understanding of Parkinson’s is not as widespread as other conditions, they’re not officially an associated charity of the race, but we’re committed to doing everything we can to initiate change and bring awareness to the forefront! It’s an illness that could happen to anyone at any time, and unfortunately we’ve witnessed its effects first hand’ said Tom Worthington, Management Trainee.

The MADe For It team are training hard and welcome any donations at their Just Giving page. All profits raised will be dedicated to The Alex Project, which is a Parkinson’s support group devoted to encouraging sufferers to participate in exercise, remedial massage and other therapies that ease symptoms, in a friendly welcoming environment.

If you’re interested in helping the team smash their target, please head to www.justgiving.com/companyteams/akwglobal to make a donation.
