My story

[p]2019 is the 20th Anniversary of my late wife's diagnosis of encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) at a time when we should have been celebrating the birth of our daughter. The Encephalitis Society provided us, as a family, the knowledge that we were not alone in dealing with the illness, the information on the illness and the support when we needed it. It is something that I, and my daughter - Zoe, are grateful for. In an effort to increase the awareness of the illness, the Society and the work they do - this year I am taking part in a number of running challenges.[/p][p]For more information: https://www.encephalitis.info/alans-story on my story and about the Society.[/p][p]26 May - Liverpool Marathon[/p][p]20/21 July - 24hr Thunder Run - a member of a team of 5 along with Steve Congreve, Lucinda Izzard, Joe Glover & Dougal Jackson[/p][p]31 Aug - Peak District 33 Ultra marathon.[/p][p]The Peak 33 Ultra is my first attempt at an ultra marathon, and where better than the lovely Peak District.[/p][p]If you can, please donate as much as you feel towards the Encephalitis Society to help them carry on supporting others, like Celia who suffered, and our family. It will mean a lot to Zoe, myself and the Charity.[/p][p]Many thanks[/p][p][br][/p][p]Alan[/p]
