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 two marathons this year, starting with the London Marathon on Sunday, 23rd April 2023 followed three weeks later with the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon on Sunday 14th May 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 your support.
