Help us fund research to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s
The Alex Flynn Award was created in 2013 to recognise and celebrate those who have ‘gone the extra mile’ in their quest to fundraise and raise awareness for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT).
Alex Flynn himself was the first recipient. In spite of his Parkinson’s diagnosis, he has shown that nothing is impossible and has gone on to inspire people to give – by pushing himself far beyond his own limits! You can read all about Alex and our other inspiring winners below.
Nominations for the 2018 Alex Flynn Award are now open - nominate your special person here.
Nominations will close on the 31st December 2018. Our judging panel will then review these nominations in January 2019 and the winner of the 2018 award will be announced in April on World Parkinson’s Day 2019. Our brilliant panel of judges includes previous winner Alison Anderson, CPT’s Lyndsey Isaacs, Lady Shelagh Nichols and David Ashford Jones and CPT supporters Lottie Smart, Jill Carson, Jean Burns and Israel Robledo.
