50km

Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

At the end of January 2022 I had the unfortunate diagnosis of MS (Multiple Sclerosis).  As you can imagine, this was a life changing moment in my life.  I am still relapsing currently and awaiting the be started on disease modifying treatment.  I have significant balance issues, numbness in parts of my body, and recovering from optic neuritis. I can't really run or play squash (my lifelong sport) anymore.... So me and my partner Sorina are doing this 50k May MS challenge.  We will be tracking all our walks and hopefully runs 🤞 on Strava and will post weekly updates on facebook. To be honest we want to smash the 50k and even try to get to 100k.

So we are raising funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis and better access to treatments. So please donate to what is now, for myself and my family a very much critical, close to home cause.

I have not done a fundraising event for many many years. So please can you support.

Thank you so much!

FACTS

There are over 130,000 people in the UK living with MS.  Of which, sorry to say I've joined that community.

You can now support this work in the UK and around the World because The May 50K supports the UK MS Society and the MS International Federation.
