I'm running 100km this month to leave MS behind
Help support me and my dad in leaving MS behind!
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves (called the myelin sheaths) resulting in nerve damage which disrupts communication between the brain and the body.
MS causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, severe pain/discomfort, fatigue and impaired coordination. These vary from person to person, whilst some may live symptom free for most of their lives, others can have severe, chronic symptoms that can never go away. Currently there is no cure, but research and treatments are underway that could have life changing implications for people living with MS.
This is something quite personal for me and very close to my heart. As some of you may know my dad has suffered from MS for the last thirty years and I’ve seen the impact that this autoimmune disease has on a persons daily life first hand.
To help support my dad and others living with MS I’ve decided to take part in The May 50K. * I’ve made a slight adjustment and increased this too 100km run throughout the month of May, as this is something so important to me and I would really loved to be pushed to my limits *
But I need your help to leave MS where it belongs, behind us! I would really appreciate it if you made a donation to support me and my dad or even joined the challenge! This is a great opportunity to help smash those fitness goals whilst helping change people’s lives ☺️💛
