Story

Hi! I'm Thomas and I am 11 (nearly 12!) years old. 

I have a medical condition called 'Friedreichs Ataxia'. 

Friedreichs Ataxia affects my life quite a lot, but mainly affects my movement. I sometimes have to use a wheelchair or a walker to help me get around (I am very good at wheelchair wheelies).

I was inspired recently by Captain Tom Moore walking to raise money for charity. I decided that I would like to do something to raise money for a charity too, and also to challenge myself. So, every day in February I am going to walk (there may also be a bit of 'rolling' involved) a mile. This is a giant challenge for me, but I want to raise money for Ataxia UK. 

Ataxia UK are a very special charity who help people with Ataxia - like me! They fund vital research which will (hopefully) lead to a cure being found one day.

Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support,

Thomas
