Congratulations to our amazing team MDS UK who ran the iconic Great North Run!6 Sep. 2023
The start was very hot which made running tough but our Great North Run team made great time. Thankfully all our runners were through before biblical rain hit the site. It certainly was a memorable day.
Fiona Christie and Chris Newton
Fiona from Turiff and her brother Chris from North Berwick ran for their Mum, Marion who was diagnosed in 2012.
"We are both delighted to be running in the Great North Run 2023 for MDS UK. Our Mum was diagnosed with MDS in 2012 and gets ongoing support and information from MDS UK. The Great North Run is extra special for us as it takes place in Newcastle which is our dads hometown, (Howay the lads (&lassies)) Mum & Dad are both coming down to support us on the day and it will be amazing to have them along with us and see them when we cross the finish line 🖤"
Carol (in the red) is from Sunderland and is a friend of our acting CEO Debbie Hickman and her late husband Neil.
James ran for his dad Colin Law
"Unfortunately my dad has MDS and so I've chosen to do the GNR to raise funds for the charity that is providing him with help and support. I hope that you can support me, him and the charity also with a kind donation!"
Another fantastic race run by Richard (after raising over £2,000 from a run back in 2022.)
