Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 

When I finished the London Marathon in 2011 I said 'never again'...but then I was offerered a Gold Bond place running for Muscular Dystrophy in 2012. How could I refuse?

 

My Dad had Muscular Dystrophy, and it was always a part of our lives as I was growing up. Over the years I saw him struggle more and more as the disease gradually robbed him of his independence, but he never gave into it and he always remained positive. He died in 2001 aged just 52 and we all still miss him terribly.

 

Muscular Dystrophy still casts a shadow over our family, but I am very blessed - I didn't inherit the faulty gene; I am clear and so are my children. This means that I have the strength to run, and in that way - and with your help - I can raise money to help Muscular Dystrophy carry on supporting adults and children affected by muscle disease and continue their search for treatments and cures.

 

Your donation could fund research to improve and lengthen lives, fund physiotherapy to help keep a child walking for longer or give practical and emotional support after diagnosis. Any donation really will make a huge difference.

 

Please take a minute to donate now...every penny counts.
