Kev will be running the Boston Marathon on Monday 16th April and it's a pleasure to have him on the team.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt][lt]img title="SuperKev" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/QwilGlW2_YUjbTCv8CjAY8z1XnmujpIUr6N5C7j_QSaWXum6uKULz9Zmh-XjIr7OStBz6Z2l3BGl-FjxwS9oO6eln76afcW1FrQNGiq8WnR_CZhxBVyDWk--dPtULFjrtirHZpVvqao1Us2fsGUeYBjJyk29ww8phrmd6G6DSxv9HzugK49Rylg519DhsYGnYsiWh5GkR5oXo06wwynk-6VbUNpBDcmoxVokj-KskshsHlzTrgXLr4qRlC4glG85pb5fBB4ku4R5Aw8riM5ASmJdlKpCutFb99aqFTv7Q0IqxW_Qu785HB0oD_MbvZtn57DsfsyXSFt0JNoXnPHAvSaVZQq0XShNiXmHtDuXkfqvu8z8aAOIHAG8b-dCEZswyx5iziyymXDQ2qIXfp14xgXMtP7bmnqVM4ZBzS7LR-NHWisTF_nbNoFh1v0UQs6ZMOKNiXDLf7lLX1byM0PKTj7UZU9lWUaPLr2uDH7SDe0wC_CvmVdCCzobPLRRITQQPQmqIf00Cfa7Bg5Rm4JD5PNQ1_uiReVa5vn_8c-gygYm1XYmayswuSgdOBhf7eARjcJtQrg4u6N74msJogq2CcNj06mx2RJu_XlLBh-yBT7U657XZEnOO_dIdQLQyFXZavdM9FiU_qTEPjn6xciG_Tguv4kCIyMouBdHjrcHYA=w640-h960-no" alt="SuperKev" width="200" height="300" /[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt][span=font-size: 12.96px;]Why are we supporting the MS Trust?[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt]Well, because one morning in the summer of 2005, Tim woke up with a numb hand.  This was the start of a journey that led, four years later, to a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt][span=font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;]Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a lifelong condition that affects the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).  There is currently no cure and it can affect your life in many different ways.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt]For Tim, symptoms include numbness, pins & needles and a loss of muscle strength in the left-hand side of his body.  Tim likes to run.  His symptoms sometimes make this difficult, but not impossible and he's mostly stubborn enough to ignore his body, knowing that there are people far worse affected by MS than he is and that he's lucky to be able to do as much as he does. Lucky?  Well, you only have to visit an MS clinic to receive a healthy dose of perspective about what this disease can do.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt][lt]img title="Tim" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/2sv5vLfA9jQ1hzoTsCw2dXzF8Z03z-2VAcoAPbB3Zsyql9O1jE1uEDZEBrhyDIwLqN1j_Zf1-UNffP7AJ6oVlW_qQo4RkuW926jVMMUM145HQTMcDouZa2wXBXDLY97HIe0_Uc0Ew7dG7cO0BrefqrQH9m24YE_td-xaNWLRFZyemUIlmp34kMWj6AocieXGg-huQ2SzPAijAHXYDFM94qmuzb1bFIdD1bUlfH-W1MgT3dFCj5PBFqnq6vfh-TEuGD4f34o62_ouz7V5CZAhTmKBOTePwSOJcSQGh2PjA9Fm54cNQqJNtiIhXYJX98wcCXMD8sytisXsKWoOnoQyKvqyiW9r3DVX2mHoHEb02TXbQxzf-Ee9zJt2qwmo5-EVTAgM1B5SsvUYBdArHLg97ox1txizXHjnkqT_P99dPs40VT536S2Mr6H-Kpfrmx6ULxxlbLo_rWpa0yzMMzHp2sn_XQ4hBd52bBRHQ-QUzlmE57J5IUxlXhIloi0NWb1axmZNCbkbXW2GSu92rJ-psgZr0pgyk5XuVrt70-FAH5AYJKREp7AONdUmSWt0uvzIDcNhsfHPKeGo8mCWswfJG-lLMUFGPKO65wW4QsS0UWs_DiwKrPVc6VDwH3NPl0s7KT7JGBBhoyjwpBp8iYJ5jRniBOHFsd6FT9lHTGTm8A=w1062-h1598-no" alt="Tim" width="200" height="301" /[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.96px; line-height: 15.552px;"[gt]The journey to diagnosis with MS is sometimes a long and difficult road.
