My story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to look at my fundraising page.[/p][p]My Dad was diagnosed with Familial Motor Neurone Disease / ALS in March 2020. He’s fighting this despite overwhelming odds. [/p][p]I saw Kevin Sinfield run 7 marathons in 7 days last year for his former teammate Rob Burrow and I was inspired to do something similar.[/p][p]My aim was to climb/run 7 Munros every day for a week 21-27th August. There are 282 Munros (Mountains over 3000ft / 914m). I'm a keen runner, but this was certainly my toughest physical challenge yet, requiring a great deal of training and planning. Much of the ground I covered was very rough, sometimes pathless/boggy/rocky and usually very steep, so I had to be careful to avoid putting myself in danger.[/p][p]Nevertheless, I did it! I summited 50 Munros, totalling 126.5 miles with 45,111ft of ascent, in a moving time of 33h37. Big thanks to all my supporters and donors for making it possible and worthwhile! [/p][p]A lot of recent discoveries are being made about MND and other degenerative diseases, so there is hope for those who might face this in the future, but currently over 1,200 people are diagnosed with a similar number dying of MND each year in the UK. I carry the same genetic mutation as my Dad, meaning I supposedly have an 80% chance of going down with MND at some point. [/p][p]The MND Association and The My Name'5 Doddie Foundation are committed to putting money into the best MND research in the UK. The money you give will help us find a cure for MND.[/p][p]Let's get it done sooner rather than later! [/p][p][url=][/url][/p]

This money was originally for two tickets for The Round Chapel concert with Johnny and Cosmo. Sadly that's no more so this is where I want that money to go. Good luck to you Joe, and particularly to your Mum and Dad who seems indomitable. Keep trucking
