We Fund research and palliative care to Improve outcomes for MND patients


Hello and welcome to my Just Giving page.

Yes, you read that correctly. I am taking on the London Marathon again this year. Completing that race has been a lifelong goal of mine so to come so close last year was devastating.

One of my sharpest memories of last year when getting to the finish line in a bit of a state, is hearing people console me by saying "there's always next year". Living with MND makes that hard to comprehend. A year is a long time with MND and I could not be confident I would even be alive in 12 months, let alone still be capable of taking on a marathon.

Yet here I am! Ready to take on the challenge again, more determined than ever to raise more funds for research, more awareness of the disease and what can still be achieved no matter what life throws at you.

So let's go and complete that #UnfinishedBusiness

A huge thank you to everyone who makes these challenges possible, and a particularly special mention to the people who are going to push me round: Chrissie, Steph, Neil and Tom. You are my superheros.
