Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

This year The Energy Effect Fitness Studio’s annual charity day will be raising money for CJD Support. This is a charity that is incredibly close to all of our hearts. For many years we have been aware that one of our very special members and friend Kate Akerman carries the hereditary CJD gene, in January this year Kate was diagnosed with the onset of this very rare brain disorder.

The symptoms of CJD are heartbreaking, loss of coordination, depression, loss of sight, weakness of the arms and legs, progressing to losing the ability to move or speak. There is no cure for this cruel and devastating disease. The impact of the illness is hard to comprehend.

Kate is truly one in a million, a person that touches your heart, she goes above and beyond to help everyone, adds sparkle and a little mischief to everything she’s involved in, looks glamorous even after a sweaty Piloxing class and is adored by so many people.

This year we will make our beautiful Kate proud and show her just how much she means to everyone at The Energy Effect.

Please donate and help us smash our fundraising raising target.

Thank you so much xx
