Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. My health took a poor turn. I put on weight. And I was worried.
At Christmas I weighed 18.5 stones. Out of shape. And so I decided to do something about it. With the support of my family, and especially my wife, Shazza, I joined Slimming World and started to get active.
Part of that new me was being challenged by Shazza to run the London Marathon. She knows I can do, and thanks to her I know I can too. But I didn't want to do it just for me. I wanted to make a difference.
Motor Neurone is a horrific disease. A disease that took, in the 1980's, my wonderful and beautiful grandma, Joan Denton, from us far too early. It's terrible that even now, over 30 years later, the medical world is no nearer finding out the cause of this disease, let alone a cure. Funding is desperately needed to help sufferers but also to fund research so that others may not experience what my family and I did 30 years ago.
Please give as much or as little as you can. Every little bit will help me reach my goal of running the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon course whilst helping fund the important work of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
