Fitness instructor Sarah Frow, based at the University of Kent’s Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy (PCIT), is set to undertake a six-day run from Winchester to Canterbury.

Diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease two years ago, aged 44, Ms Frow aims to raise awareness about the condition and funds for the centre that offers tailored non-drug therapies.

Kicking off her journey on May 27, she will cover 20-30 miles daily, ending on June 1 at Canterbury campus where PCIT operates from.

Sarah said: "I was seeking a physical challenge which was gruelling yet inspirational. A friend suggested running part of the Pilgrim’s Way, and I thought why not take it a step further and do the entire route!

"I am raising money for PCIT, as not only is it a great place to work, it is a much needed facility for people living with this complex disease. I hope I can inspire other people living with Parkinson’s to live well, to be active and to be strong!"

Already surpassing her initial £10,000 goal, she has now increased the fundraising target to £20,000.
