I'm really keen to raise some serious funds for the research arm of Parkinson's UK. My body is slowing down (aren't we all) so there's a very real chance that my physical wellbeing means I have a limited window of opportunity to do so via any physically related challenge(s)
I'm considering various schemes:
- a whole month cycle commute (16 miles each way) regardless of weather. When I used to be fit I could get here in 45 minutes, but an hour is tough nowadays - that doesn't mean I shouldn't or couldn't do it though.
- something more grand (coast to coast or John O'Groats to Lands End or Niagra to New York) ideally with some technical wizzardry to beam live pictures to a website
- A round-Britain relay passing the baton between PwP on a non-stop journey (of hope!)
- Organised endurance - walking, swimming, cycling, anything but running!
- a charity golf day at a premier venue (Belfry, Wentworth, etc.)
I do think that it's a case of "the bigger the better", but I'm just little old me, with no claim to fame and no friends in high places ... I'm stunned and humbled by the achievements of so many, but haven't got a clue how to go about organising anything "big" - so the question is does anyone have any experiences that they might be willing to share about what worked and what didn't?
