If you love a game of golf then why not pitch in for a good cause this year? Par for Parkinson’s is a fundraiser that gives you the opportunity to create your own golfing event to raise vital funds for Parkinson’s UK. Whether you want to organise a golf competition, take on a Three Course Challenge, or hold a golf quiz night, there’s something for all golf fans.

The money raised for Par for Parkinson’s will fund our research to help find a cure and improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition that affects 12,400 people in Scotland.

We are the leading charity driving better care, treatments and quality of life for those with the condition. Our mission is to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's through cutting edge research, information, support and campaigning.

There are more than 40 symptoms of the condition. As well as the most widely known symptom - tremor – there are other symptoms like muscle stiffness, depression, anxiety, hallucinations, memory problems and dementia. Parkinson’s affects everyone differently.
