Last year I ran the Hackney Half Marathon to raise money for Epilepsy Research UK, after someone close to me was diagnosed with this intrusive condition.
Epilepsy affects 1% of the global population, with 80% of those affected living in developing countries. I was shocked to find out that one third of people diagnosed with epilepsy don’t respond to the medication currently available, and I chose to support the work of Epilepsy Research UK for this reason.
This will be the biggest challenge I have attempted, both in terms of the distance and my fundraising target. Through training individually and with GoodGym (a running group devoted to making positive change within communities), and with your support, I hope to make it over the line on both fronts.
