Run for Parkinson was launched in 2015. Patrick Demoucelle, living with Parkinson’s disease for 10 years then, decided to run the 20km of Brussels in order to raise funds to find a solution for Parkinson’s disease.
240 people enrolled in the initiative and ran together with Patrick. Many organizations and companies got engaged and supported Run for Parkinson.
The first Run was a big success and therefore the event was organized again in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2017, other Parkinson patients joined Patrick and ran the 20km for the first time. This tradition was continued. Around 500 runners joined us with the colours of Run for Parkinson in 2019.
