My story

[p]⚠? Coronavirus COVID-19 Update ⚠?[/p][p]Just to let you know that as of Tuesday 17th March, the 2020 event was postponed until 2021. Sadly this is true of all mass participation events due to the coronavirus outbreak.[/p][p]Thank you to all who have sponsored me so far, your donations have helped Lyme Disease UK and will continue to do so. [/p][p]I am still running this event instead postponed until 2021 (date to be confirmed). Please continue to sponsor me, as Lyme Disease isn’t going away. [/p][p]Stay safe and look after yourselves. [/p][p]Colin [/p][p][br][/p][p]My Story ...... [/p][p]My name is Colin Ratcliffe, husband to Lisa Ratcliffe who unfortunately has been a long suffering Lyme Disease patient for a number of years. She was bitten by an infected tick some 5 years ago, and has been struck down with countless debilitating symptoms ever since. [/p][p]She is unable to work and is registered disabled, has difficulty with everyday life whilst trying to be a Mum, Wife and lead as normal a life as possible. All because of a little tick bite which at the time we didn’t know would have such devastating effects without having the right course of immediate treatment. [/p][p]Lyme Disease UK is charitable organisation offering support for Lyme Disease patients and their loved ones. They are a fantastic source of information and help for us, and a key link to others who share this wicked condition which at the present doesn’t have a cure. [/p][p]This is why I’ve chosen to support them, and help people like my Lisa. [/p][p]On the 10th April 2020 (Good Friday) I will be undertaking the Manchester to Liverpool Ultra Marathon (M2L) running 50 miles. I’m being joined by a small contingent of my running club members (BTR Road Runners, Hoylake), who are going to help support the charity also, which is brilliant. [/p][p]It would be wonderful if you are able to support by sponsoring me on this challenging adventure. [/p][p]Please spread the word and share my challenge ..... let’s help Lyme Disease UK to fight for a cure and continued support to the many suffering Lyme patients. [/p][p]Thanks so much [/p]
