Story

Last time I was out of my comfort zone was 2012 when first diagnosed. People thought I was crazy then. The Great North Run has always been on my bucket list. Last year I started with having seizures which have been hard to find what is causing them. Since 2012 only tend to do parkruns as a tourist, travelling to different ones but also volunteer for them as well as being on a core team for a new one to start! I am an avid fundraiser for charities as well and thank people able to take me to these events.

What is MS?MS is an unpredictable and incurable condition that affects people's nervous systems. It can attack suddenly or progress steadily, bringing a range of symptoms which can include sight loss, incontinence, fatigue and mobility problems. No-one with MS can be sure when or how it will affect them next.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.
