In 2015 and 2016, Tim and Caitlin ran the London Marathon and, thanks to the support of people like you, raised over £20,000 for the MS Trust.

After a year off marathons in 2017, we stupidly seem to have committed to run the London Marathon again in 2018. 

This time, Tim and Caitlin will be joined by SuperKev: a good friend, a wonderful runner and an all-round inspiration who has kindly offered to help us bring down our team average time for the marathon distance and to help us to raise much-needed funds for a charity that is very close to our hearts. Kev will be running the Boston Marathon on Monday 16th April and it's a pleasure to have him on the team.

Why are we supporting the MS Trust?

Well, because one morning in the summer of 2005, Tim woke up with a numb hand.  This was the start of a journey that led, four years later, to a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a lifelong condition that affects the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).  There is currently no cure and it can affect your life in many different ways.

For Tim, symptoms include numbness, pins & needles and a loss of muscle strength in the left-hand side of his body.  Tim likes to run.  His symptoms sometimes make this difficult, but not impossible and he's mostly stubborn enough to ignore his body, knowing that there are people far worse affected by MS than he is and that he's lucky to be able to do as much as he does. Lucky?  Well, you only have to visit an MS clinic to receive a healthy dose of perspective about what this disease can do.

The journey to diagnosis with MS is sometimes a long and difficult road. It can be frightening to develop symptoms without knowing what is causing them.  Once you are finally diagnosed, you still have to face up to the reality of living life with an unpredictable and incurable condition.

This is where the MS Trust comes in.

The MS Trust is a fantastic charity: it is dedicated to making life better for people living with multiple sclerosis by providing free information to everyone affected by MS and by supporting the health professionals who work with multiple sclerosis, especially the wonderful MS Nurses (Maxine at QMC in Nottingham is a treasure). 

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
