Along her journey she has had some amazing support from the Motor Neurone Disease workers, all funded by charity - they have helped her with insurance, fitting a toilet that cleans and flushes for her, providing a wheel chair, breathing machines, a hospital bed... THEY EVEN sent her a marks and Spencer's voucher for Christmas and told her to treat herself, we really want to give something back to this great charity - I will be running a race later this year whilst my sister Colette Duffy is due to run Manchester Marathon next weekend by herself!
For those who know Colette, running is a passion for her - so she was absolutely devastated after months of training for the marathon to learn she had a quad tear, for the past 12 weeks she has been receiving physio (which costs a fortune) so even if she has to walk this whole marathon she makes sure she crosses that finishing line!
She is just over £10 short of her £500 target that she wants to raise for the Motor Neurone Charity, she has worked so hard to get herself to a position where she can head to Manchester next week and run for a cause that is so close to us!
If you can spare anything, I urge you to donate to this fantastic cause via her just giving page!
Her page has many many posts about her training journey so far and you will see how much this means to her ❤️❤️ Thank you in advance and Colette - know that we are all very proud of you xxx
