2 Marathons,2 Weekends,1 Great charity.

My name is Kyle and recently my youngest daughter Delilah was diagnosed with Epilepsy. Because of this I would love to raise money for Epilepsy Society by running Manchester and London Marathons 1 week apart. 

Epilepsy Society are The UK’s only charity transforming the lives of people with epilepsy through world-leading research, advocacy and care. Along the way I’d like to share information and learn from others about Epilepsy and its effects on individuals and their families. 

We as a family are newcomers to this long journey of discovery, treatment and hopefully cure of epilepsy for our daughter and if we can help others along the way to recognise symptoms and also provide the correct care for those before/during and after an epileptic seizure as well as raise donations to fund more research, advice, support and advocacy then that would be amazing. 

Alongside my marathons, my eldest daughter will be making bracelets to sell and 100% of the profit from that will also be donated. Who knows we may even have a few more fundraisers along the way too.

I will be sharing some of our progress on instagram and Facebook and possibly the odd TikTok too, so give me a follow, I’ll appreciate the support and any advice.

Please click the link and donate anything you can to help me achieve my goal of £2620. 

Your money can make a difference, here’s just a few examples of how:

£12 could help distribute tailored information about epilepsy, ensuring the first five leaflets are free.

£25 could help to ensure someone who desperately needs to talk about their epilepsy can call our helpline.

£50 could help forward our world leading research projects, leading to more accurate, personalised treatment.

£100 could help our research team analyse genomics data, which will lead to better seizure control.
