My story

[p]14 friends (including myself) will be taking part in a wheelchair event to raise much needed funds and awareness of Motor Neurone Disease.[/p][p]I was diagnosed with Bulbar onset MND in December 2019 and given a prognosis of 2 years.[/p][p]I'm a husband and devoted father, a son of 4 years and a daughter of 8 years.[/p][p]Despite the prognosis, here I am today, I'm only now beginning to require a wheelchair when fatigued and walking wipes me out.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I couldn't think of a better way to embrace this new normality for me than to create an event using a wheelchair, then my friends wanted to get involved and I appreciate them all for their continued support, not just towards me, but also for my family.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]The Event Detail[/u][/b][/p][p][b]14 friends will be divided into teams of 2 = 7 teams[/b][/p][p][b]Each team of 2 will collectively complete a half marathon in a wheelchair around a 400 meter circuit [/b][/p][p][b]Each team member will be responsible for completing 6.5 miles (this is not a timed event)[/b][/p][p][b]Each team member completing 6.5 miles = 13 miles a half marathon (6.5 x 2 = 13)[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]I will struggle to complete this but I am determined to do it, with these guys in my corner, I'm certain the positive energy will get me through.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Where the funds will go[/p][p][br][/p][p]The funds will go to 2 charities divided 50/50.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]The Arthur Rank Hospice[/u][/b] - Living well centre and The Cambridgeshire MND Branch[/p][p][br][/p][p]I will be visiting and using the hospice more often as my symptoms progress and this is why I wish to give back to them while I'm still able[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]Cambridgeshire MND Branch[/u][/b] is my local branch, again this is why I want to give back to them while I'm still able.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
