Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

I’m taking part in The May 50K! 😅 

This might not sound a lot if you don't live with a chronic health condition. My relapsing remitting MS impacts my balance and walking due to the damage caused by a relapse which resulted in a diagnosis in 2021. So this will be painful and exhausting. But it's important, and a small act that can make a difference with your help. 

How does it work?

I will be taking on 50km throughout May and leaving my limits behind to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis and better access to treatments!  I'm doing the 50K in addition to my usual daily steps, and I'm doing most of this in the last week of May. 

Why it matters

There are over 130,000 people in the UK living with MS and an estimated 2.8 million globally. 

I need your help to leave MS where it belongs, behind us. 

How you can help

You can now support this work in the UK and around the World because The May 50K supports the UK MS Society and the MS International Federation. I’ve accepted the challenge to change lives.

If you are able, please make a donation to support my challenge. If you cannot afford to make a donation, I'd be super-grateful if you could share my page on social media. 

Thank you so much! ❤️

Thank you to my Sponsors
