Charlie Cox is raising money for Parkinson's UK

I'm running the Marathon Des Sables

Event date: 6th April 2019

My story

Hello all and thank you so much for visiting.

I'm running the Marathon Des Sables next month - its a 254km 6 day foot race across the Sahara with all of your food and kit on your back!

I'm doing it as a challenge for myself and paying all of the costs associated with it. I also would love to have a positive impact on others too - so I'm hoping to raise some money to help find better treatments for two diseases that have affected the sporting prowess of two of the people closest to me.

1) My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's several years ago.

2) Mr Monkey Sox: James Carvell is one of my best mates and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2016. He's started a fantastic not-for-profit community interest company that make odd socks and raise money for 3 MS charities. I would be SO grateful if you were to check them out and buy a pair (they make great presents!). Check them out here:

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Parkinson's UK.
