Murray & Ross' 180 miles in July Challenge (Cycle/Run)

Fundraising for CSF Leak Association - The Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Charity
raised of £150 target
We raise awareness CSF fluid leaks to improve diagnosis and treatment options


Murray and Ross are going to Run and Cycle a total of 150 miles in July to raise money for CSF Leak Association. Murray is aiming to run 50mile and cycle 50miles, whilst Ross will go for 25 miles each.

One of Murray and Ross' favourite things to do is to visit their Uncle David, Auntie Cerian and cousin Calum in Strathpeffer. 

However, life has not been easy for them as ever since 2013 David has suffered from a CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) leak. This has changed thier lives completely and despite surgery, and other efforts to help improve his condition, his leak remains. It is hard to put into words just how debilitating this is for those directly and indirectly effected, but both David and Cerian have have kept positive, sought ways to adapt and spent a huge amount of time setting up this charity to help fellow sufferers, their families and to raise awareness within the wider medical community. 

We will be providing updates throughout July to let you know how they are getting on.
