Krish reaches Everest Base Camp and raises over £2,500 for the Parkinson’s Centre

Sudhir Krishnan (Krish) was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 37.  He is now 52 and experiences tremors, stiffness in his hands and legs, freezing, shuffling, slowness of movement, lack of motivation, sleep problems, mood swings and depression as a result of his diagnosis.  He has always been active and has found that continuing with exercise, such as golf and walking, has helped bring about an improvement in his symptoms.

In order to keep active and challenge himself, Krish embarked on a challenge of a lifetime by taking part in a trek to Everest Base Camp last month.  He completed the challenge and raised an incredible £2,581 for the Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy.  We are most grateful to him for his support and are incredibly proud of what he has achieved.  His JustGiving Page is still open so please sponsor him today!

Krish was interviewed on KMTV about his experience and you can watch this online.

We look forward to hearing what Krish has planned for his next challenge and thank him once again for his dedication to supporting the Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy.

If you have been inspired to take part in your own challenge event to raise money for the Centre, please contact Anna Pollard to find out the support available to you.
