Pars Foundation

Parkinson’s Walking Football

The Pars Foundation and The Raith Rovers Community Foundation have joined together with Parkinson’s UK and Walking Football Scotland to deliver sessions for those on a journey with Parkinson’s.

Brian Carson, Parkinson’s UK commented: ‘What a wonderful provision for those who have Parkinson’s within Fife, it’s great that two clubs have joined together in creating these sessions.”

Drew Wilson, Walking Football Scotland, added: Football brings a lot of fun and camaraderie, no matter what you’re going through. The power of football helps us keep healthy and supports our mental health. Well done to The Pars Foundation and Raith Rovers Community Foundation in delivering this project. Good luck to everyone involved.
