When MS Trust supporter Tim Sorrell signed up to his first parkrun, somewhat reluctantly, he could never have imagined the positive difference it would make to his life. He explains what makes it so special.

Since the first event back in 2004, parkrun has grown into something of a national phenomenon, with hundreds of thousands of people taking part every Saturday, come rain or shine. Now parkrun wants more people with disabilities and long-term health conditions to get involved, be it through running, wheeling, walking or volunteering.  Katherine Goulder is one of parkrun’s Outreach Ambassadors for MS. Here she tells us how parkrun very quickly became part of her own Saturday routine and why others with MS should get involved too.
