Are you looking to keep active through the Christmas season? Or do you want to burn off those extra mince pies? Join The Cure Parkinson’s Trust’s (CPT) ‘Santa Dash’ and get moving in support of our pioneering Parkinson's research.

Plan your favourite local route to conquer in the month of December. Whether you’re running 5k, 10k or taking a stroll through your local park with your household, throw on your best Christmas attire, get active, and have some festive fun while raising awareness and funds of our research into a cure for Parkinson’s. 

What do I do?

This virtual event gives you the freedom to take on the challenge that best suits you. Set your distance, plan your local route and choose when you will complete your ‘Santa Dash’. Below are some suggestions for your festive challenge:

  • Set up a festive family obstacle course in your garden to complete with your household
  • Take on a ‘Santa Stroll’ in your local area
  • Run a ‘Merry Mile’ in your local park
  • Take on a ‘Santa Sprint’ running 1km in your local area
  • Run a ‘Festive 5k’ or ‘Tinsel 10k’

Whatever your challenge…don’t forget to show off your best Christmas getup!

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on CPT. In 2020, 95% of our fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed and our funding decimated, and so we are hugely grateful to be able to hold fundraising events such as this to raise vital funds and awareness of our Parkinson's research.
