    UPDATE: Target now raised to 500km and £3,000 by 1st March

    I have set up this page to help Kim Gouldson. This is why she is asking for your support:

    Kim's Lockdown kms!

    I have rather fallen into this by agreeing to join a friend in walking during this 3rd lockdown. I like a challenge and I'm passionate about raising money and so I thought I'd combine the two hoping that my friends may support me.

    The challenge: To walk 300km by 1st March (well I must be mad as a March Hare). In this weather and with Allan needing me more indoors currently trust me this will be a challenge!

    Raising funds for: Many of you will know my amazing husband. Allan was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease 7 years ago and year on year he dumbfounds the medics and makes me proud. A more brave, caring, selfless man you could not wish to meet. The Cornwall branch of MND have been a lifeline to us and in 2020 we had hoped to have another garden party but sadly this was not possible and although we did find creative ways to raise money for them, it wasn't the amount we would have wanted.

    I would give anything for them to find a cure for MND. It is something I pray for daily. Sadly the scientific quest for answers does involve animal testing within the research. Whilst we need cures and treatments I would also like to see a future for my grandchildren where use of animals in research is a thing of the past. Animal Free Research UK evidences this possibility with pioneering research and good friends of ours are key members of the Bude support group who are particularly active.

    So I am going to split any money raised equally between MND Cornwall and Bude support group for Animal Free Research UK (Exeter ARC 2.0). Exeter ARC 2.0 are currently conducting research into Diabetes and Covid-19.

    I plan daily updates which will be posted here. The most nerve wracking part is wondering if anyone will donate. I hate asking for money (or help!) but this is very important to me and so I have decided to be brave Kim. Please donate what you can.
