Team story

[p]Thanks for visiting our page. This year we have another string of events lined up to raise money and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease and Alzheimer's Disease. A treatment and a cure is desperately needed for both. [/p][p]Our events so far include a string of half marathons including the ever-present Great North Run; Endure 24, Snowdonia Marathon and in the year I turn 50, my very first duathlon!! I'm still getting used to the comfort (or lack of it...) on the bike, so that will be an interesting one! Update Aug: After us both completing Slateman duathlon in Snowdonia in May, which was pretty brutal, Mike has gone nuts and decided to take part in the Brutal half duathlon (more on our website: www.nofinishline.org.uk)...incredible challenge!! [/p][p]Many of you know our story - in 2006 I lost mam to Motor Neurone Disease, just 10 months after diagnosis. The disease robbed her of her ability to walk, move, swallow and talk. It's progressive, aggressive, terminal. It's indiscriminate and so far, there is no treatment and no cure. Mike's dad is currently suffering with Alzheimer's, a cruel disease that robs you of your memories and leaves only the physical shell of the person you once were. No treatment, no cure.[/p][p]The MNDA supports families and sufferers by providing equipment such as Lightwriters, adapted chairs etc. to enable those with the disease to maintain an independent life as far as is possible, and to ease some of the symptoms where this can be done.Although mam lost the ability to talk, she used a Lightwriter to communicate - those of you who knew mam will know how important that was to her! They also fund important research, in the hope of one day ridding the world of this cruel disease. [/p][p]Alzheimer's Research UK fund the very best biomedical research, from basic to clinical, that improves our understanding of all the causes of different dementias or improves diagnosis, prevention and treatment. Their ultimate goal is a preventative treatment or intervention for neurodegenerative diseases. [/p][p]The MNDA will receive 75% of any funds we raise, and Alzheimer's Research UK 25%. Please join us and help us ensure that in the future, these diseases are well and truly eradicated.[/p][p]Until there's a cure, there is no finish line!!![/p][p]Thank you for your support![/p][p]Christine & Mike xx[/p]
