Frontrunner Kerry Bonham completed an amazing challenge throughout the month of October to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Read all about her amazing challenge here and also see the link below if you would like to still sponsor her for this very worthy cause.
From 26th September to 25th October, I ran 5000 metres (5km) every day to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease Association.
I was inspired to do this by my partner Lauren’s cousin, who was diagnosed with MND in 2018. Cousin Chris is one of 5000 people in the UK who are living with MND, which is why the number 5000 is important to the charity.
Over the course of the 30 days, I ran my 5k at various times of day, and in all weathers. I really enjoyed picking different routes, because I got to see so much beautiful scenery, and I met lots of lovely people too. Even when it was dark and raining, the support from my family and friends kept me motivated.
So far, I’ve raised £582 for MNDA, which will make such a difference to those living with MND! Thank you to everyone for spurring me on during my challenge!
