My Story

My Mum, one of the most selfless, caring and generous people you will know, was entering the golden years with all 6 kids grown up, starting their lives, when she was given a life changing diagnosis. A diagnosis that would mean she would slowly lose her ability to move freely, express herself and complete daily activities that we take for granted.

This diagnosis was Huntington’s disease. A disease that causes Mum to have constant involuntary movements, making it a challenge to walk and sit without assistance, as well as taking away her ability to talk, and more recently swallow.

Despite this horrible disease, Mum has been nothing but positive. This has motivated me to set a challenge to make the most of one part of life we take for granted - the ability to move. So, over the next year I will be running a marathon each month in the hope to raise money for Huntington’s research.

A little goes a long way, so even if you have a dollar to give it will help push me through the 504km I will be covering in 2018. These donations will be contributing to research on Huntington’s disease, as well as support many families affected by the disease.
