When I was 14 I was hospitalised and diagnosed with Encephalitis. Encephalitis is when the brain becomes inflamed and can commonly be life-threatening. After a few weeks of being hospitalised, I was able to walk out with minor side effects. One thing though is that I had to regain strength in my arms and legs so I could walk again. This is why I am running this 10k so I can show how far I've come since then and raise money and awareness for the cause.
I ran a 10k last year to raise money for the same cause, and I am now running three 10k's to continue my support.
Any donations are appreciated.
