Last year I applied through the ballot to run this year's London Marathon and unfortunately wasn't successful. Not wanting to give up I contacted MS Society, the registered charity I had intended running for and asked if I could be added to a shortlist incase anybody couldn't run.

Guess what? They just confirmed I have a place!

GUESS WHAT AGAIN!! I ONLY HAVE TWO MONTHS TO TRAIN!!

Hello, thanks for visiting my fundrasing page.

Last year I applied through the ballot to run this year's London Marathon and unfortunately wasn't successful. Not wanting to give up I contacted MS Society, the registered charity I had intended running for and asked if I could be added to a shortlist incase anybody couldn't run.

Guess what? They just confirmed I have a place!

GUESS WHAT AGAIN!! I ONLY HAVE TWO MONTHS TO TRAIN!!

:-O

Why Multiple Sclerosis Society?

My grandfather was a wonderful man who loved life, had a fantastic family and was very entrepreneurial like me! You could say he was very wealthy in a lot of ways from an early age.

Age 29 he was diagnosed with Multiple Scleroris (MS).

In case you don't know much about MS. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). The disorder most commonly begins between ages 20 and 40. MS is manifested by damage to the myelin sheath, the protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. When this nerve covering is damaged, nerve impulses are slowed down or stopped. MS is a progressive disease, meaning the nerve damage gets worse over time. The nerve damage is caused by inflammation. How quickly MS gets worse varies from person to person. The disease can also be extremely debilitating. Around 100,000 people in the UK have MS. It affects two million more.

My grandfather first lost his eyesight and the disease spread through his body affecting his muscles and limbs, leaving him unable to walk without crutches. He had to be full time cared for by my grandmother.

Depite this debilitating disease, he surprisingly very rarely ever felt sorry for himself. He used to talk for hours and share his wisdom and loved a good joke. Since he passed away aged 60, I have heard nothing but stories of how he had helped people out despite his own personal circumstances. A truly remarkable man.

I have chosen to run the Marathon as a small personal way of saying thank you to him as he has truly inspired me, and to be grateful for the good health that I have.

I am sorry to ask for donations but without donations from people like you and me, charities like MS Society wouldn't exist and cures would not be found.

Please donate, no amount is too small or too large!

Thank you in advance,

Simon
