I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) when I was 26, 11 years ago. The diagnosis came after suffering with severe vision and mobility problems. After two years of investigations and tests MS was deemed to be the cause of the problems. Since that diagnosis I have tried to remain as positive as I possibly can and try and raise awareness and some money for the MS Society at the same time. I am one of the fortunate ones as I can lead a fairly normal life whilst still receiving treatment for the condition. Some others are no so fortunate and the MS Society are doing tremendous work in pushing forward the research into new treatments and procedures to find a cure for this condition to help those in not such good shape.
National 3 Peaks Challenge for the MS Society
The National 3 Peaks Challenge
- This is an event in which participants attempt to climb the three highest mountains in the UK, Starting in Scotland then England followed by Wales.
- The challenge should completed within 24 hours.
- The participants climb each mountain in succession.
Ben Nevis: 1344 metres
Scafell Pike: 1085 metres
Snowdon: 978 metres
There are (at the time of writing this) 10 of us who are stepping up to try and conquer this challenge and raise a stack load of money for a good cause. We realise that asking anybody for money, for a charitable cause, is a big request and all we’re asking for is a small donation to spur us on to complete this.
For an able bodied, mid-fitness person this challenge is difficult, for someone (me) who has a medical condition limiting their balance, co-ordination and capacity this is going to be one of the hardest things I’ve ever agreed to do.
Please sponsor us and think of all the amazing work the MS Society are doing nowadays to find a cure for approximately 100,000 people who suffer with this condition on a daily basis.
