Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Nick and I am attempting to complete 20 events in 2012 (including the Berlin Marathon and my first ever Ultra-marathon, the Haworth Hobble 32 mile race in March) to raise money for research into the causes and treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.

As you may already know, my brother Ben suffers from MS and the determination and courage he has shown in dealing with the horrible effects of this disease has been an inspiration and also made me aware of how important it is to support the great work the MS Society are doing in their search to find effective treatments and eventually, a cure.

The 20 events will be spread over 12 months and include distance running, cycling and triathlon (confirmed events in bold below - or visit my blog at http://nicksmarathondiary.blogspot.com/ )

You can sponsor me via this just giving page or the old fashioned way via a sponsorship form - to do this please email me at nickr9000@yahoo.co.uk
