3 brothers to run in Marathon in aid of their father

RUNNING a marathon is a real test of stamina and endurance and 3 brothers from Liverpool are getting ready to take part in the Birmingham International Marathon, in 2017. The Birmingham International Marathon, on 15 October 2017, is the 1st of its kind. Having competed in many marathons in the past, all 3 brothers are all looking forward to taking part in this event, in aid of their father, Patrick Davis, who has Parkinson's.

"My Brothers and I will be running the Marathon in aid of Parkinson's UK, a charity with duel roles of funding research to combat Parkinson's and secondly to change attitudes towards the disease.  Our Father was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011 and it has been a steep learning curve for him and us to understand and adjust to the great change in all our lives, especially our Mother who provides full care. Pat Davis has always had a sporty life and still swims and walks as often as he can... As a younger man he completed the Birmingham Marathon last time the full event was hosted in our great City (Birmingham) over 20 Years Ago!  With that it just made sense to challenge ourselves to complete this event as a nod to our Father's achievements and a fantastic opportunity to raise some money for a much deserving charity." said James Davis, who still lives in the West Midlands.

"It is also a very rewarding experience, crossing the finish line, accomplishing 26.2 miles by foot! It is something anyone can achieve, and a great way to raise money for charity. Myself, and my 2 brothers, have started our marathon training for next year's Birmingham International Marathon. We're fundraising for the Parkinson's charity that drives better understanding, care, treatments and quality of life for sufferers of the disease and their careers. Hopefully, the day will come sooner when no 1 will fear Parkinsons, and will have the support and treatment needed to fight the disease.
The more we learn, as a family, about Parkinson's the more we realise what a debilitating and unrelenting disease it is. As the cause is not known, there is no cure. The disease affects everyone differently, and is managed only by a regime of drugs, which are monitored regularly to keep the disease from completely taking over. A cause and cure need to be found soon. It is through the Parkinson's Society and their work that this can become possible." said Thomas Davis, who now lives in Liverpool and helps to run Boundin Forward.

If you feel you would like to donate to this worthwhile cause, please go to their Just Giving Page.
