My story

[p]On a day where tens of thousands of people would be running a marathon, what better way to continue the spirit of fundraising by doing my own version of a marathon. I’m attempting to walk 2.6 miles in one go... for those who know my journey - Sunday 26th April will also mark 8 months to the day since I was left paralysed by a random and unexplained onset of a rare neurological condition called Transverse Myelitis. [/p][p]2.6 miles may seem a short distance to most but since re-learning to walk, literally one step at a time, this is a loooong way!! I need a challenge... [/p][p]x[/p]

Sorry to be a bit late Helen. You might remember me - ex-neighbours from Pool Hill. I am in contact with your mum and dad on Facebook and so have followed your progress with awe. Well done - a great achievement.
