Would you like to get your whole family fitter, healthier, spending more time together, all while raising money for a fantastic cause?

We’d like to show parkrunners the inspiring video of Team Parkin, a family from Warwickshire who joined forces last year to complete Running Down Dementia.
Young sisters Amelia and Tessa Parkin, aged 11 and eight, and their mum Emma and dad Dave, formed their own team to finish Running Down Dementia as a joint effort over the summer. Amelia and Tessa’s grandma, Rosie, is living with dementia, and the pair were immediately drawn to the challenge to try and make a difference in the fight against dementia.
The siblings split the 100km between them, with the kilometres being clocked up while at their local parkrun, around their home near Stratford-upon-Avon and even in Iceland on a family trip!
The girls were even more honoured to receive sought-after Blue Peter badges for their efforts.
Click here to see their inspiring video, along with some of our other runners.
