Story

I am running the Hull Marathon to support the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Group. My Mother in Law lives with this condition, as do all the people that benefit from the fantastic work that the MSTG does. M.S. can be an extremely debilitating condition, which impacts all aspects of a person's mobility. The therapy group offers a place where people can benefit from group workouts, therapy sessions, physiotherapy and a community that understand what it is like to have M.S. What sets the M.S.T.G apart is that it provides an environment where people can take active steps to help themselves by remaining active and seeking therapy in a group that understands the complexities of their condition, however the group still needs financial help to pay for equipment, therapists and space to conduct activities for those the group supports. M.S. can impact everyone differently and therefore the M.S.T.G constantly needs funding to evolve and provide the best therapy that can cater to every individual's needs, both physical and emotional.

As for me, for those of you that know me you will know that I have completed marathons before and may not think that this will be much of a challenge for me. I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a marathon that is 'not challenging' but also I will only be arriving back in the U.K. 1 month prior to completing this marathon and I have spent the last 6 months in a climate and environment where undertaking marathon training has not been possible so it certainly will be a challenge! Please help me to raise money for the M.S.T.G, your support means so much to myself and the group!
