Mel's Coronation Marathon

Event dates: 6th May 2023 – 4th June 2023

Melanie Freeman is raising money for Kent Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre

My story

Last year I took on the challenge to complete a marathon in a month and did it in 23 days. An easy challenge for some but made difficult by fatigue, my legs not wanting to cooperate and vertigo thanks to my MS!! I'm taking on another marathon challenge this year - The End to End Coronation Marathon!! I have 30 days to complete 26.2 miles starting on the 6th May...My MS has become a little worse over the last year and my mobility is a little more difficult but I will not let it defeat me!!

Can I beat 23 days? Can I beat the amount raised last year? Even if you are unable to donate, that's totally ok - messages of support are hugely welcome too!!

Thanks guys, love Mel xxx

5 Days in and just over 5 miles walked - on target!! Ready to tackle todays walk and I've managed to pick up a couple of cheerleaders to help too!! Thank you SO much for your donations to date, we smashed the fundraising target so fast that I've set it a bit higher to spur me on and hopefully raise more for the centre. Every penny raised goes to the centre, so thank you for supporting us!! Fingers crossed for more sun and less rain for my walks too...Mel xx

Just a few days to go till the official start!! I've been working hard on getting my steps in for preparation for the challenge - all is going well at the moment. So why am I doing this? I do enjoy pushing my (new) limits and keeping moving - very important with MS - and at the same time I can raise awareness and funds for the very wonderful MS Therapy Centre near by. The centre is a really great place to go for non-medication therapies that help me so much. It's a lovely friendly and social place where I can go and no one bats and eyelid if I'm in the wheelchair one week and using the rollator the next - they understand the good days and bad days, no explanation required. I'm very grateful for the donations so far - and really excited that I've reached 50% of my target already - THANK YOU!! Mel xx
