My story

<p>I did&nbsp; not realise the extent of Muscular Dystrophy until I visited the charity. &nbsp;It was explained that muscle diseases cause muscles to waste and weaken making it hard for those affected to do even the simplest of tasks. The conditions don&rsquo;t just affect the muscles in the arms and legs but the heart and respiratory muscles too. There are no cures and many affected children don&rsquo;t live to reach adulthood.</p> <p>The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading UK charity focusing on muscle disease. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for over 50 years, and is dedicated to improving the lives of all children and adults affected by muscle disease.&nbsp; It funds world-class research to find effective treatments and cures; provides free practical and emotional support; campaigns to raise awareness and bring about change and awards grants towards the cost of specialist equipment, such as powered wheelchairs. I will be walking the Muscular Dystrophy mile with Kimberley Randle. Kimberley Randle is 23 and has Distal Muscular Atrophy which is a muscle wasting disease that affects her from the knees down and from the elbows down. Kimberley uses her manual wheelchair for long distances or uses a stick for balance. Kimberley was diagnosed 4 years ago and has been involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign since then.&nbsp; I am delighted to be walking with Kimberley and we hope to raise awareness of Muscular Dystrophy and hope that you will donate to support the 70,000 affected with Muscular Dystrophy in the country.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p>
