My story

[p][b][img][/img]The Big Gibbo 100km Walk 2021[/b][/p][p]On the [b][i]26th June 2021[/i][/b], I will attempt to walk 100km (62.137miles) in 30 hours. This event will take place at Thorndon Country Park (South) in Brentwood.[/p][p]This is a fantastic and deceptively tough challenge, even for well conditioned athletes, let alone for a person diagnosed with MND![/p][p]Having been diagnosed with MND in 2018, this will represent a true test of my inner capabilities and drive.[/p][p]Our charity 'Challenging MND' was set up to serve the MND community.[/p][p]Challenging MND aims to provide memorable experiences to those diagnosed with the crippling, progressive and life-limiting disease of Motor Neurone Disease (MND).[/p][p]Any donations, however small are most welcome.[/p][p][b][i]Key facts about MND[/i][/b][/p][p][i]MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. [/i][/p][p][i]It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles can no longer work. [/i][/p][p][i]It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.[/i][/p][p][i]It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis. [/i][/p][p][i]Six people per day are diagnosed with MND in the UK. [/i][/p][p][i]It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. [/i][/p][p][i]It kills six people per day in the UK.[/i][/p][p][i]It has no cure.[/i][/p]
