Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis

We give hope to people diagnosed with MS to live long, healthy happy lives

Charity Registration No. 1157579

Story

My mother was diagnosed in 2013 with Multiple Sclerosis. She came across Overcoming MS and it has really helped her with her diet, fitness and her attitude to living with MS.

The Marathon Des Sables is a 250 km run over 6 days in the Sahara desert. I knew about the race as my dad has done many of these races before. The race is in April where the temperature will often exceed 50 degrees. It is something I have always wanted to do from a young age and this is the first year I will be allowed to do it being one of the youngest ever to attempt the MDS.

Overcoming MS is a charity established to promote a positive lifestyle programme that aims to help people with MS live long, healthy lives. We are committed to improving the lives of people with MS by providing the tools to enable recovery. Overcoming MS...is possible
