Joanne Ewing is raising money for Brain Research UK

Joanne's Lisburn Half 2016 for Brain Disorders Research

Event date: 15th June 2016

My story


The half marathon started off really as a challenge for myself until someone (naming no names Janice) said they would sponsor me. So I have chosen the Brain Research Trust which carries out research into more than 250 brain disorders such as Alzheimers, motor neurone disease, muscular sclerosis and epilepsy to name a few. They receive no government funding and rely solely on donations.

The reason for choosing this charity is that a family friend (David McClurg) died of motor neurone disease some years ago and I always felt I would like to do something. Also because of friends who have relatives with neurological conditions or they are affected themselves. Thanks for your interest and support.


Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Brain Research UK.
