I am running for a charity close to me... " I am running because they cant!!!" Everyday people with this condition are in huge amounts of pain and have constantly fatigued. Other issues can be from osteoarthritis to thin blood vessels.

Many members of my family have this condition. You never knows what's around the corner with this illness so just have to take it one day at a time, and live for that moment.

EDS UK is charity who supports those who suffer from Ehler-Danlos syndrome while raising awareness for the condition. This is a genetic and hereditary disorder which affects the connective tissue, to put it simply, the glue in your body isn't made correctly. This comes with a number of other conditions and also things such as hypermobile joints and, chronic and constant pain. EDS is a lifelong condition, and sometimes this life is cut short due to the complications EDS can bring! 

I am hoping to raise money which will go towards supporting patients with EDS, raising awareness of invisible illnesses and funding research for genetic screening tests. Thank you for your time to read this, if you would like to know more about EDS, you can read about it here: http://www.ehlers-danlos.org/
