Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As many of you know, running for me is part of my life and has been for several years. However until I took on this challenge I had never run more than 13 miles and I knew that to double this would be tough. 

I am lucky to know that I have so much support from friends and family and if you can extend this encouragement to donate a small amount to others that also need your support then I would be very grateful.

I would like to raise some money for Arthritis Research as while I am able to pound the streets mile after mile I know that for some, walking can be so painful and difficult . Arthritis Research are vital in funding research and developing new treatments for those suffering from arthritis and other related muskoskeletal conditions.

On a very personal note my mum Jane has lived with arthritis for over half of her life and as the arthritis has progressed I have seen the symptoms get worse. Thanks to the the pioneering development of Anti-TNF by Arthritus Research UK, this has helped my mums pain as well as millions of other people across the globe in ways which were just not possible in the past.

My Mum and Arthritis Research have inspired me to keep on giving 100% both mentally and physically, pushing on through the long 17, 18, 19 miles all the way through to the 26 I will complete on the 13th April 2014.

Please help me support this amazing support.
