Huge congratulations are in order for DPhil Student Rebecca Wallings, a Parkinson’s researcher in Richard Wade-Martin’s lab, who completed the Dorney Lake Winter Half-Marathon this weekend, in order to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.
She has already raised over £500 for the charity, which funds research aimed at understanding and curing Parkinson’s disease, including the very research done in Becky’s lab.
They also provide support to those diagnosed with the disease and strive to increase their quality of life.
Becky had signed up to the Windsor Half-Marathon, but the event was cancelled due to the snow. Becky finished the race in an impressive 2hrs 9 mins, shaving 11 mins off her personal best.
