My story

[p]Why I'm raising funds fro Berkshire MS Therepy Centre...My mum’s best friend died of MS. Diagnosed when she was just a teenager back in the 60’s treatments weren’t available as they are today and I don’t want to see anyone else suffer the way she had to; bedridden and unable to do a thing for herself. I have 3 friends with MS but thanks to modern day treatments they are able to actually live their lives and what’s more they get to be active members of their family’s lives.[/p][p]There is still no cure for MS but Berkshire MS Therapy Centre, the charity I’m raising funds for have over 30 years’ experience working with sufferers from Berkshire and the surrounding areas to help them make the most out of life. They offer a wide range of treatments including physiotherapy, exercise classes, oxygen treatment and counselling.[/p][p]Click [url=https://www.bmstc.org/what-ms]here[/url] to learn more about what MS is.[/p][p]When I visited the centre I was amazed at the positive attitude coming from the people who suffer with this potentially debilitating illness, they get so much out of the treatments on offer and know there is hope but it costs over £400,000.00 per year to keep the centre going. The centre believe “The support should be given based on need rather than the ability to pay. However, we can only continue our work with the generosity of people who use our centre and our supporters. We would never turn away anyone with MS who needs our help”[/p][p]The marathon has been postponed to Sunday 3rd October 2021 so the charities who rely on the marathon for donations have really taken a hit. As a result I've decided to up my game a little with not 1 but 3 races. The first being Salisbury Plain Ultra, a 50 mile race on 15th August, this will be my longest every race. The 2nd will be the amazing London Marathon, my 2nd world major marathon but the one I'm hoping to do my best at. Third will be Test Way 50 mile Ultra Marathon, due to take place last April it will now take place in November, bring on the mud![/p][p]Training has finally begun in earnest. Week 1 completed in rather warm conditions, it was tough but I feel pretty positive. Whatever challenges I face training for these races will be nothing compared to the challenges people living with MS face every single day. Please donate if you can, even £5 will make a difference. [/p][p]If you'd like to keep up to date with my training you can find my blog at https://www.hampshireglutenfreecompany.co.uk/blog (it's linked to my work website as my customers have been asking for updates)[/p][p][br][/p]
