Epilepsy Action
Epilepsy is the UK’s most common serious neurological condition affecting an estimated 1 in 131 people. Epilepsy Action helps over one million people every year through its range of services including its advice and information centre, branch network and accredited volunteer scheme. The organisation’s award-winning website, www.epilepsy.org.uk, receives over 100,000 visitors a month. The Epilepsy Helpline on freephone 0808 800 5050 is available Monday-Friday, 9.00 am - 4.30 pm (4.00 pm on Fridays). Over 90% of its income is in the form of voluntary contributions and our vital work would simply not be possible without the kind support of people such as yourself. Thank you.
Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity
The Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity helps sick children get better by funding extra medical equipment, improving facilities, financing specialised research and training and providing a wide variety of extra comforts for young patients and their families at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, other health centres in the East of Scotland and in the Community.

Katie's 12HR and 8HR WR Attempt Page

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Katies8HRand12HRWRAttempt

Since the age of 4, I've had epilepsy. It's challenged me in ways I never thought it ever could, and made me stronger in equal measure, in ways I could never have imagined.

Both Epilepsy Action and The Edinburgh Children's Hopsital Charity, have provided incredible support to me and so many other young people with epilepsy, so please dig deep for them!

On the 2nd of July 2017, I will attempt to break the Guiness Women's 8HR Track Cycling WR and  UMCA 6HR & 12HR Track Cycling WRs as well as break the UMCA 100 mile WR to raise funds and awarenss for epilepsy.

4 world records attempts for 2 incredible charities.

On the day, rather than worrying about buying a ticket to watch the attempt in the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, all we ask is for you to donate whatever you can to our 2 charities.

Enjoy your day ...and thank you! x
