To mark the PDA Society's 5th anniversary since becoming a registered charity (5th January 2021) and to help raise awareness and much-needed funds for the charity, Team PDA is doing various Couch to 5k and other 5-themed challenges. Team PDA is a group of trustees, volunteers and friends of the PDA Society ...

We're all very out of our comfort zones with the challenges we've chosen but really wanted to come together (virtually) to mark the charity's anniversary, raise awareness and much-needed funds and support each other along the way!

We'll be sharing team member stories and updates here and on the PDA Society Instagram Stories throughout the challenge so please do check in from time to time to keep up with our progress.

Whether you're able to donate a little or a lot or simply share our fundraiser with others, THANK YOU! Every penny raised will help us to help others living and working with PDA.

Huge thanks to everyone who has donated and supported our 5th anniversary fundraiser - we're incredibly grateful to you all!

Well done to Hilary who has completed her 40th and final cycle with a total of 500km!

Vikki’s been held back in her quest by illness so will be picking back up on the challenge as soon as she’s fit again, aiming to do a park run when they’re operational again. Good luck Vikki and we hope you feel better soon!

Katie climbed 2 more virtual landmarks (St Paul’s Cathedral and Sydney Harbour Bridge) bringing her total steps climbed so far to 7,399, with 3 more weeks and 5 more landmarks to go.

Well done again to everyone who has completed a challenge and good luck to those still going!
