My Progress

I'm 50km this month to leave MS behind

My Progress

50.10km

My Target

50km

Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

I’m taking part in The May 50K challenge and will be leaving my limits behind to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis!

Just a few weeks ago I woke up with pins and needles in my legs, after a few days it spread to my whole body. A few trips to hospital and a lot of tests later the doctors tell me I have multiple sclerosis.

The good news is I have a wonderful partner, great family and an awesome group of friends and workmates to support me.

More good news, I'm told science is making great advances to combat this chronic, life-changing disease.

However, there is still no cure or definitive cause so I'm calling on you to dust off the old wallet/purse to help change that.

Sadly, MS is commonly diagnosed in the prime of life between just 20 - 40 years old.

Research is the key to changing the future of MS and I’ve accepted The May 50K challenge to change lives.

Since finding out I have MS I've found great relief from my symptoms in the water so I'll be mixing it up between running and swimming this 50k throughout May.

Please make a donation to support my challenge.

Thank you to my Sponsors
