Over 150 supporters of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) came together on a beautiful autumn day in October to participate in the annual 'Ricky Road Run' in tribute to the charity’s late President and Co-founder Tom Isaacs, who died suddenly in May this year. Tom’s family and friends were joined by CPT staff and supporters in the 10 mile road run which is organised annually by Affinity Water and winds its way through some 'hilly' roads in Rickmansworth and Chorleywood, Hertfordshire.

Tom (above right), who grew up in the area, set up The Cure Parkinson’s Trust following his Parkinson's diagnosis at the young age of 26. He took part in the Ricky Road Run many times and for this reason so many of his friends, family and colleagues came together to participate and raise money for CPT.

No pre-race nerves here!

And they're off..!

Will Cook said,

What a fantastic day! Over 150 runners sporting The Cure Parkinson’s Trust singlets took to the course on a fine autumnal day to run 10 miles around this beautiful yet challenging course. Tom Isaacs would have loved this: the course even passes his childhood home at 9.5 miles. And we all enjoyed the last 0.5 miles, which thankfully was downhill!

A family effort - The Brews do it in style!

Five lads a leaping..! Team 'The Future' do it in One Direction style!
