Cycle to Newcastle in 3 days, then run the Great North Run.
I am cycling to Newcastle from London Olympic Stadium on September 5th to reach Newcastle on September 7th, in time to run the Great North Run on Sunday, September 8th. Why? To raise money to help people and those close to them deal with what is an incredibly debilitating disease. A family member underwent tests a few months ago to confirm a suspected diagnosis. I was unbelievably happy when they proved negative, but close calls are a motivator in their own right, so when I was offered the chance to take this on, it was a very easy decision.
Yes, I can run a half-marathon, but bolting a 300mile cycle on the front creates a real challenge. If you want to help me reach my goal, please donate whatever makes sense to you.

The MS Society
Here at the MS Society we understand what life's like with MS. And together we are stronger. We're researching, writing, campaigning and fighting. Running, walking, caring and talking.Support the team Our MS Superstars are hoping to raise in excess of £170,000 for people affected by MS. This could help fund vital research into the causes of MS and possible treatments. It could keep the helpline open, answering the calls of those looking for advice and support. It could fund grants, our online forum, informational materials and much more.Let's stop MS together.
