I’m aiming to set a Guinness World Record by becoming the first person to travel at more than 55 mph or 90 kmph in an electric mobility vehicle, more specifically an electric wheelchair!
Why? Well I was always a bit of an adrenaline junkie and
loved skiing, grass tracking, fast cars and motorbikes. In 2013, at just 37 years old, I was diagnosed with a terminal illness, Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and my life changed beyond recognition. I have slowly lost the ability to move and I am now in a wheelchair and need full time care. Although the disease has broken
my body it hasn’t broken my spirit and my determination to carry on living life to the full.
Since my diagnosis I have taken on a number of extreme challenges for charity, including the longest zip wire in Europe and the fastest in the world, becoming the first person to summit Mount Snowdon in an electric wheelchair and abseiling off the Humber Bridge. Over all I have raised over £25,000 for charity. You can view these challenges in the video section of my website www.makingmemories.life
This time I have chosen to raise money for research into the disease that is killing me and thousands others. All funds will go directly to the Motor Neurone Disease Association for research. We have to find a cure for this disease and stop the suffering.
