Team story

[p]On Sunday 23[sup]rd[/sup] April 2017, the members of the Jones and Allcutt families will be taking on a collective challenge to raise money for a very personal cause. Lewis will be tackling 26.2 miles, joining 40,000 other runners on the start line of the London Marathon, whilst in his sixtieth year, Steve is also taking on the full 26.2, running the Longhorn Marathon around Sherwood Forest. Having previously conquered the full distance, Diana will be running 13.1 miles also around Sherwood Forest and will be accompanied by Alison, who’ll be fitting her training around work and the small matter of looking after two children under four. Bridget is powering her way through a no-doubt rapid 10k, whilst Dave is lining up a 5k run with a one-year-old strapped to his back (she’s his daughter, it’s nothing untoward). Taking on the biggest challenge of all is four-year-old Anna, who is risking her legs getting ‘[i]dizzy[/i]’ and her feet getting ‘[i]fizzy[/i]’ by joining her Daddy and baby sister for the 5k. No small feat considering that, in her own words, ‘[i]running makes my knees google[/i]’. Now if that’s not worth donating for, we don’t know what is. All in, that’s the best part of 150km of pain and suffering.[/p] [p]So why are we taking this on? Simple, it’s all in the name of raising money for Narcolepsy UK. Most of you will know that 10 years ago, aged 9, Bridget was diagnosed with narcolepsy, an underfunded and misunderstood neurological condition that affects the brain’s ability to regulate the sleep-wake cycle. Narcolepsy affects approximately 30,000 people in the UK – tldhough many of these go undiagnosed for many years. The symptoms of narcolepsy have an effect on almost all aspects of daily life – everyday activities become exhausting, sufferers are required to take a wide range of medication and as with so many conditions, its effects reach further than just the sufferer, impacting on parents and siblings as well. Whilst medication and other strategies can help to manage these symptoms, there is currently no cure.[/p] [p]Narcolepsy UK is a fantastic charity that helps to support people living with narcolepsy, their families and their carers. We’re aiming to raise £4,000, a sum of money that will make a [i]huge[/i] difference to this small but determined charity. That’s where you come in. Please sponsor us whatever you can to help us reach our fundraising goal and to help Narcolepsy UK continue its vital work.[/p] [p]From the Jones and Allcutt families, from everyone at Narcolepsy UK and most importantly of all, from everyone it supports, thank you. [/p]
