I am 42 on Monday 15th June. I had been thinking about doing a fitness challenge in June and then along came Kirsty Ellson’s Infinite Balance June Challenge to set yourself a fitness/wellbeing challenge for the month of June. Anyone can take part!

Raising much needed funds for MNDA who are supporting my Dad.
D R I V I N G F O R C E
My Dad was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in August 2018. He is my absolute hero and I love him very much (along with all my family!) I want to make him proud and raise awareness of one of the cruelest of diseases. Raising money for MNDA along the way is just a bonus!
M N D
With MND, messages from the motor neurones gradually stop reaching the muscles. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Not all symptoms will affect everyone, or in the same order. Symptoms also progress at varying speeds, which makes the course of the disease difficult to predict. MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. There is a 1 in 300 risk of getting MND across a lifetime.
U P D A T E S
I will be doing a daily update on Facebook of my mileage and the people I meet along the way. Social distancing cycle buddies and cycle-bys always welcome. My updates will also include a song from my ‘Dad Playlist’ so please join me, listen to the music and enjoy the ride!
