Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I shall be running a half marathon every month in 2019, finishing with a full marathon in December. My aim is to raise awareness of the debilitating disease of Myotonic Dystrophy and to raise much needed funds for Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group in order to help other sufferers, as well as support continuing research. This is a cause close to my heart, as my dear aunt Clare stoically battled with the disease for many years of her life and sadly passed away in October last year.
Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group is a charity run by volunteers and dedicated to offering the hand of friendship and support to all those affected by Myotonic Dystrophy. The charity is supported by professional specialist advisers, including in the fields of genetics, neurology, anaesthetics, research and rehabilitation.
My first race is the Gransden Muddy run in Cambridgeshire on 27th January. My race itinerary for the rest of the year is as follows. (This may be subject to change.)
February 17th - Leicestershire half marathon
March 10th - Cambridge Boundary run
April 14th - Rutland Water half marathon
May 12th - Draycote Water half marathon
June 23rd - Colworth Marathon Challenge
July 7th - Leamington Spa half marathon
August 18th - Isle of Wight half marathon
September 29th - Blenheim Palace half marathon
October 6th - Wimpole Hall half marathon
November 17th - St Neots half marathon
December 28th - Great Barrow Marathon
