Cat Mayo from Stephen Graver Ltd is running the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 13 March 2016. Her first half marathon, she is running to raise money for the MS Society.
“I am running Bath half marathon to raise money for the MS society, a charity which is very close to my heart. In June 2010 my sister Becky was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It’s a neurological condition, which affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments can help people with MS manage the condition and its symptoms. Until a cure is found the MS society will continue to fund world-class research to make sure people with MS have the treatments and services they need.
“Becky has been incredibly strong and is an inspiration to everyone who knows her! It’s been a tough journey but we are extremely proud of her determination and positive attitude throughout. Her symptoms include; migraines, difficulty processing information, loss of sight, fizzy legs and general fatigue. It breaks my heart to see her suffer.
“Everyone who knows me will know that running a half marathon will be a big challenge, I’ve never entered a race before let alone run that sort of distance! So please dig deep and help me raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity and help beat MS! Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.”
