October’s fundraising heroes
Even though autumn was well underway with colder days and darker nights, our amazing supporters still got out and about to raise vital funds and awareness for our research this October.
Father-daughter duo Sean and Grace decided to walk the length of the Thames river in little over a week, completing the 185 miles in just nine days! They started their walking challenge at Thames Head near Kemble, following the river through seven counties to arrive at the Thames Barrier in London. This challenge was one close to their heart as Pat, Sean’s father and Grace’s grandfather, lived with the condition.

A lot of our fundraisers took on running challenges for us this month, including Gemma who took part in the Leicestershire 5k; and Billy, Joe and Rory who ran the Maidstone half marathon – raising nearly £2k for us!

Meanwhile Toby raised over £400 in support of our research when he took part in his local Parkrun. He came 6th in his age category (11-14) and beat his parents to the finish line too!
