Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

It's time for the O'Connor Charity Event of 2011.  So this year in June it's my turn for a challenge to raise money for research into Muscular Dystrophy, to find a cure for Michael's disabling condition and other children with this and similar conditions. I plan to walk the whole of Hadrian's Wall, 84 miles 'non stop' will try to complete in two days Walking with me on this event and trying to complete the whole route will be Emily (Michael's sister/ my daughter) and Beverley (Michael's Godmother).  Also along the route we will be joined by some of my work colleagues. 

As you can see his condition has deteriorated over the last year and he now uses a wheelchair some of the time.  Michael also has to take 7 different medications daily to help maintain his health which he was not doing this time last year,  wear full leg splints for 1 to 2 hours and physio daily.

So to raise funds for this extremely good cause I need you to give generously.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
