On April 11th, World Parkinson’s Day, Agenda are looking to raise awareness of the disease. Millions of people around the world are living with Parkinson’s disease, with the number of diagnosis’ in the UK expected to rise by around 18% between 2018 and 2025.
Current medications can help to manage Parkinson’s symptoms, but we don’t yet have treatment that can cure, slow, stop or reverse the progression of Parkinson’s. This means the condition continues to progress as do the symptoms and side effects of taking more medication.
Researchers are striving for a cure at all times and during this year Agenda have selected the Parkinson’s Society as their charity of the year, meaning that we will be fundraising for them throughout the year.
To mark World Parkinson’s Day we are holding a dress down day today and on Friday our staff will be participating in a bake sale, but as well as these events there has also been talk of tandem skydives and it’s a knockout fun runs later in the year!
Keep your eyes peeled on our social media for any other fundraising links that we share!
