    Story

    Steve's Story - My nephew Guy Forteith was diagnosed with MS when he was only 16 ....Guy is inspirational he plays the guitar composes music plays in a band and is fanatical about the Gym - despite how debilitating and challenging MS has been to him he still keeps fighting on.

    Stef's Story - People that I know and love have been impacted by MS and I want to do what I can to support those living with MS and to support research into a cure.

    Thousands of people live with MS and we want to raise at least £2,000 to go towards further research and therapy centers like the one that that helps look after guy in Oban, Scotland.

    In addition we want to donate 25% of the funds raised to two local Rutland based charitable initiatives.

    How are we going to raise the money ?

    BY WALKING HADRIAN'S WALL. This is a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE and is the largest remaining example of Romans in Britain. The wall was commissioned by Emperor Hadrian in 122 AD to protect Roman Britain from invasion from the North.

    My good friend Stef Douglas and I have an interest in Roman History and are INSPIRED & MOTIVATED by a good challenge and are on a MISSION to fund raise by trekking along the full 84 miles of Hadrian's Wall. Our starting point is in Cumbria at Bowness on Solway on 6th May and we will finish at Segedunum Fort in Newcastle on Tyne on the 10th May 2019.

    We will be marching the whole route wearing full authentic Roman Gear just as a Roman Centurion from a legion would have done around 2,000 years ago. The equipment is heavy 20 Kg - 30 Kg and designed for fighting and not hiking. Once outside of the cities the route, views and landscape are fantastic but challenging particularly when bad weather hits those Cumbrian and Northumbrian hills.

    More information on MS

    There are approximately 100,000 people with MS in the UK. And that each year 5,000 people are newly diagnosed with the condition. This means around one in every 600 people in the UK has MS. Unfortunately there is no cure for multiple sclerosis. The overall aims of treatment are to modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms, in order to improve quality of life. Treatment is aimed at reducing the frequency and duration of relapses and at preventing or slowing disability.

    For some, these treatments reduce the number and severity of attacks and slow disease activity. For further information go to https://www.nationalmssociety.org/Research/Research-We-Fund/Stop-MS-In-Its-Tracks
