The European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA) is the only European Parkinson’s umbrella organisation. They have been championing and working with the global Parkinson’s community for 25 years.

As the leading voice for Parkinson’s in Europe, they provide information and resources to all Parkinson’s stakeholders, raise awareness of the disease’s complexities and impact, and advocate for concrete policy change that benefits the Parkinson’s community. 

Their vision is to enable all people with Parkinson’s to live a full life, while supporting the search for a cure.

Buy a Mile

Buy a mile for £25 and your name will be written on our ‘Inspiration Wall’ inside the boat to cross the Indian Ocean with us. 

The Indian Ocean is no place for the faint-hearted, but Billy and Barry have already proved their mettle on the Pacific Ocean as part of Team Battleborn in 2014. On that crossing they not only proved that they have what it takes physically and mentally, but even managed to write quite possibly the funniest ocean-rowing blog ever, every post a gem of laugh-out-loud moments.

I wish them all the best in their bid for the speed record and in raising funds for Parkinson’s Disease, and eagerly await a new season of blog posts. Reading about the Indian Ocean will, I’m certain, be a lot more fun than rowing it.
