My story

[p]Hi I'm Linda,[/p][p]As of January 2019 i have decided i am going to participate in up to 20 mud runs for 2 charities close to my heart, Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Lyme Disease Action. I picked these two charities as my Nephew has Cystic Fibrosis and my younger sister having Lyme Disease.[/p][p][b]Cystic fibrosis[/b] (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. Long-term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of frequent lung infections.[/p][p][b]Lyme disease, [/b]also known as [b]Lyme borreliosis[/b], is an infectious [b]disease[/b] caused by a bacterium named Borrelia spread by ticks. The most common sign of infection is an expanding area of redness on the skin, known as erythema migrans, that appears at the site of the tick bite about a week after it occurred.[/p][p]Lyme disease is such an understated disease which I would like to raise the profile of through sponsorship. Lyme disease can be dismissed as ‘flu’ or ‘lethargy’ to name a couple of common misconceptions, but the reality can be much worse. With your donations more valuable research and improved awareness can be heightened. [/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]I will be paying for all events myself, entrance fees, flights, accommodation etc so any donations made to this page will go straight to my chosen charities[/p][p]Event details:[/p][p]I aim to hit 20 mud runs in the space of a year. Each event will consist of distances from 5k to 22k with various obstacles throughout. these events will take place in Northern Ireland, ROI, Scotland and England[/p][p]Confirmed events:[/p][p]Event number 1: Mactuff 22k - Scotland -[b] Complete[/b][/p][p]Event number 2: Run A Muck 6k - Kildare, Ireland - [b]Complete[/b][/p][p]Event number 3: Run Mucker Run 10k - Ballymoney, N.Ireland - 20th April[/p][p]Event number 4: Rampage 10k - Magherafelt, N.Ireland - 27th April[/p][p][br][/p]
