My story

Dear friends and family,

On May 2nd my mum would have celebrated her 80th birthday. I wanted to do something in her memory and at the same time raise funds for the PSP Association (https://www.pspassociation.org.uk/research/) so I have set myself a challenge.

It was important for me to have some relevance to ‘80’ and to India where my mum was born and spent most of her childhood and teenage years. So, I have decided to take on the Golden Triangle virtual challenge, which is 476 miles, it starts from the Indian capital of Delhi to Agra and Jaipur. I’ll be looking to complete this in 80 days! That’s 6 miles per day starting from 2nd May.

I’ll be using hashtag #India80Challenge on my social channels, so you can follow my journey. This page will be updated as I reach milestones and I will share postcards I receive on the way.

For people who know me, know that my mum suffered from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, this is a relatively new condition and as yet there is no cure.

There are believed to be around 4,000 people living with PSP in the UK at any one time.

There are no simple tests or brain scans for PSP. In its early stages, symptoms can resemble those of other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Stroke or Multiple System Atrophy and misdiagnosis is common.

The condition gets its name because:

1️⃣ Progressive – it steadily worsens over time

2️⃣ Supranuclear – it damages the nuclei that control eye movements.

3️⃣ Palsy – it causes weakness.

I want to raise £1000 to help fund research. I know I can count on your support, as so many of you have supported me in the past and I cannot ask for anything more. I want to hit my target; I know it’s big but together we WILL make a difference.

Thanking you all in advance 💜

Eram

I'm 15 days into my Virtual Golden Triangle Challenge and it’s a great day because...

🎉I hit 💯 miles - hooray

🎉I've covered 20% of the total distance and a tree has been planted somewhere in the world on my behalf

🎉I've reached 56% of my fundraising target

None of this would be possible without your support so thank you so much 💜

10 days into my India Virtual Challenge, to be honest, it feels so much longer. I've covered 69.59 miles and mentally I'll feel better once I hit the 100 miles.

Thank you all so much for your support, its really keeping me going 🏃🏼‍♀️ I couldn't do this without you all.

I have 70 days and 406.4 miles to go, when the going gets tough I need to remind myself why I'm doing this challenge and I wanted to share this with you today...

✨To keep my mums memory alive

✨To raise awareness of PSP - only 4,000 people have been diagnosed with this condition in the UK, that makes this condition very rare

✨To support PSPA so they have sufficient funding to carry out vital research with the hope that a cure can be found one day

This postcard made my day, its the loveliest one so far, if you ask me!

DAY 7 - I reached 10% of my total distance today (over 50miles). I've been out every day getting the miles in, it's hard, but your support makes it so worthwhile, so thank you 💜 I have around 30miles to get to the next milestone, which I'm really looking forward to 😊

Well its day 4 and I've completed 30.5 miles so far, must admit its been tough, but the weather is getting better and I'm building up my strength after my holy month, so will get into a better rhythm in the coming weeks. Was great to get my 2nd postcard.
