One of our runners, Alastair Day, will keep on running this year to raise vital funds for MDS UK!
Alastair smashed his 2020 running target with one day to spare. In fact, after surpassing 2500km, he thought he could reach 4750km. Ultimately, he ran an incredible 4759km!
“Thanks to everybody who supported me in 2020 when we raised over £1,500 against my running target of 4,000km.
"2020 was disappointing since all events were cancelled including the Berlin Marathon. However, I was able to defer my place until September 2021 and am looking forward to Berlin and other events this year.
“I was diagnosed with MDS in 2016 and am luckily low risk, with regular blood checks and no intervention or drugs.”
"Since many patients are far worse off than me, I am trying to raise more money in 2021 to add to charity funds, increase awareness and support sufferers of MDS.”
“Now more than ever, MDS UK needs funding since so many events have been cancelled.”
Please continue to support Alastair as much as you can! Your donations are the fuel to his running engine!
We would like to say a big thank you, Alastair, for your continued commitment to fundraising in these troubled times.
