Louise Wilson (41), has been inspired to raise funds for the charity as she has first-hand experience of the condition, both personally and professionally.
She said: “I am looking forward to the challenge as I have never experienced anything like this before.”
She added: “My dad, Neil Russell, has Parkinson’s and I want to support Parkinson’s UK in finding a cure.
“I am also an occupational therapist and I frequently meet people with Parkinson’s and their carers.”
Louise is hoping she will inspire others to take part or to sponsor her.
