My story

My Dad has recently been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This has been a tough diagnosis for Dad and all the family but we are all together and ready to face this journey together.

As a keen rugby player/follower, MND is something I have been increasingly aware of through the awareness raised by Doddie Weir, Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield. Jacqueline and I have taken part in Doddie Aid each year but I now feel it is time for me to step up to an even greater challenge in the fight against MND.

So I have challenged myself to run 7 half marathons in 7 days.

Beginning on the 6th of October I will first run the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow. The remaining half-marathons will consist of routes between sailing clubs across Shetland and will include some extra mileage to give a total distance of 100 miles for the week.

Before Dad received the MND diagnosis in March, earlier in the year he was also informed that he had prostate cancer. This is on top of living with Crohn’s disease for the past 35 years. Despite all this, he has never complained and so neither will I when running up a hill in the wind and rain. This challenge is not just about pushing my physical limits; it's about raising awareness and funds to support those affected by MND.

Thank you in advance for your support and any donation you can make. The money raised will be split between MND Scotland (50%), MND Association (30%), Crohn’s and Colitis UK (10%) and Prostate Cancer (10%).
