Bryn it to win it - take part in Wobbly Williams 5k

GET your running shoes on and help to raise some cash for a great cause by taking part in the first ever Wobbly Williams 5k run at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow on Sunday, April 8.

The Wobbly Williams website was set up by Bearsden man Bryn Williams (40) just three months after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease four years ago.

He realised there was a lack of information and support available for people with the illness when he started looking for it so he decided to set up Wobbly Williams and write a personal blog to help others.

Bryn and his supporters have raised over £410,000 so far for Parkinson’s charities including Funding Neuro which carries out clinical trials of drugs.

He said: “All we need now is runners. The race will be an organised Scottish Athletics event with official timing so is suitable for all levels of runner.

“It will be an ideal race for anyone training for the forthcoming men and women’s 10k races. All entrants will get the all important medal and a goody bag.”

Entry costs £13 (£11 for Scottish Athletics members) and you can sign up online at www.entrycentral.com, full details of the charity and the research it will fund are available at www.fundingneuro.com
