Story

As some people may know. Almost 2 years ago we got the devastating news that our wonderful Dad was diagnosed with MND and, taking us completely by surprise it turned our worlds upside down!
MND is a terminal illness that currently has no cure and an illness that sadly took Dad from us at age 65 on Wednesday 5th August.
Since his diagnosis we have been overwhelmed with support from friends and family but also lucky enough to have some incredible support from local and national organisations.
While the NHS care has been second to none we could not have got through the last 2 years without the additional support from the INCREDIBLE palliative care team from John Taylor who provide advice, resources, comfort and support for all the family and regularly checked in on Dad.
The MNDA are an incredible charity who provide funding for individual cases to help with equipment and support groups to make living with MND less difficult and also contribute to research to hopefully one day find a cure.

We have chosen to use crowdfunding to ensure we can split our total equally between these 2 amazing causes.

Since dad has always been a keen sportsman and extremely fit and healthy Chris and i felt that the most fitting way to raise money in his honour was to have 12 months of fundraising by doing various fitness and sporting challenges and roping in as many friends and family to help as we can.

Thankyou for reading this far and for anything you may be able to contribute to this.

We never thought we would be in this position and we hope that the money raised can help to prevent other families having to face the same situation in the future.
