My story

My wonderful Mum was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) in November 2020. She is still fighting this cruel disease every day with such courage and dignity it inspires me. Sadly, at this time there is no treatment or cure but hopefully one day with research there may be.

The feeling of helplessness watching my Mum as this disease takes over her body is heart wrenching. Which is why I have decided to run the London Marathon on the 23rd April 2023. I'm proud to be supporting two charities with this challenge:

Motor Neurone Disease Association will receive 50% of the money raised to be spent on research projects to take us closer to a world free from MND

Leeds Hospitals Charity will get 50% of the money raised to build a flagship centre for care, through their Rob Burrow Centre for MND Appeal.

This may not help my Mum but hopefully it will help others in the future.

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 Motor Neurone Disease Association and Leeds Hospitals Charity.
