Story

After a very long journey starting in 2018, I was finally diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis in January 2020. 

Being in my mid twenties, enjoying my life and having the best job I could ever imagine - the diagnosis hit me hard physically, emotionally and mentally; Unbearable pain, vertigo, fatigue, vision problems, depression and balance loss (to name a few!). 

Since the diagnosis I have have vowed to take the good with the bad and try to transform it into something that gives my life meaning. Although MS has gave me some awful symptoms, it has gave me strength, desire, courage, perspective, compassion and gratefulness. Perhaps with every diagnosis and with every struggle there is a gift to be given, a lesson to be learnt and a heart to be healed. 

My sister Laura and I, have decided that we would run the very long (and no doubt very difficult) 13.2 miles with every ounce of energy that we can, in order to raise more awareness of this awful disabling disease!  

Any money that you donate will be greatly received and it really does go towards an incredible cause who offer a new life to people who are effected by the disease. 

So we ask, please please help where you can - let’s beat this disease together! 🤗💪🏼🌻

Due to my health and perhaps my own anxiety 😦 (cheers MS) we have decided that we are going to run the half marathon locally, raising more awareness locally and also supporting the local MS therapy centre. We encourage everyone who donated to come and cheer us on. We will update you on the ‘checkpoints’ when the route is confirmed, however we WILL be running this on SUNDAY 20th MARCH 2020 starting at 10am

Thank you all for your continued support! We wish you health and happiness always! 🧡👏🏼
