Tom Morgan is raising money for Motor Neurone Disease Association and Leeds Hospitals Charity

Tom Morgan - Slaying the Dragon 2022

My story

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is one of the cruellest diseases imaginable - it robs you of your ability to walk, to use your hands, swallow, speak or hug your loved ones. Yet it leaves intact all your intellect and your senses – sight, hearing, smell – so you are able to watch your body waste away.

Inspired by Rob Burrow, I will be raising money to directly benefit people living with MND.

On 5th September 2022 I will run the world's toughest mountain race, the 'Dragon's Back Race' down the spine of Wales from Conway Castle in the North to Cardiff Castle in the South running 380km in 6 days, averaging 63km a day with a height gain of 17,400m – equivalent to 1 ½ marathons a day and a height twice the height of Everest above sea level.

Your support will be split equally between the Leeds Hospitals Charity appeal to build the Rob Burrow Centre for MND supporting people living with MND and their families, and the MND Association which funds multi-disciplinary care delivered at the Centre and others across the country, as well as research into potential treatments for the disease.

This will be the biggest challenge of my life but nothing compared to the challenge that sufferers like Rob Burrow face.

Please help defeat this horrible disease by making a small donation- thank you.

Thank you all for your amazing generosity - I am touched by your kindness - thank you. With less than 5 weeks to go, the training is going well bar a few niggles which I am entitled to at my age! and I recently managed 150km in the Brecon Beacons over 3 days - packing is now underway and I am in the advanced stages of planning for what is a logistical challenge and not just a physical one :-)
