Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Last year's BikeForMike was a great success, raising over £23,000 for various MND charities, so this year I decided to fulfil a long-held ambition and try to raise some more money for MND at the same time, by running the NYC Marathon.

It's now over 2 years since Mike died following a long fight against Motor Neurone Disease. He was just 46 when he died, the same age I'll be when I run the Marathon. To witness his steady decline was a traumatic time for all his family and friends and we all still miss him enormously, but the courage, intelligence and humour he displayed thoughout was inspirational to us all.

From the very day of his diagnosis, the information I gained from MND Scotland helped me to begin to process, and come to terms with, the horrible inevitability of this cruel disease.

As a thank-you to MND Scotland I'm going to "Do Something to fight MND", in the hope that one day an effective treatment may be found, and in the meantime to continue to support families like mine.

Please give whatever you can in aid of MND Scotland

Thanks,

Alan
