My story

[p]You may well know by now that I did not manage to get to the start line of this year's marathon due to flu that knocked me out for over 6 weeks. So, lucky me, i get to train and run next year![/p] [p] I will still be running in memory of my mother, Margot James, who had MS and my father Jim James, her devoted husband. When I was about 10 years old my mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a disease affecting the central nervous system for which there is still no cure. My parents became passionate about fundraising for research and were involved in starting up a charity called ARMS which was active in promoting and funding research at a time when no other organisations were making research a priority. That charity later became the MS Trust.[/p] [p][/p] [p]The MS Trust continues to be dedicated to making life better for people living with MS as well as supporting health professionals who work with them.[/p] [p]Thank you for all the support and generous donations that will spur me on to run next year![/p]
