Our family is taking part in the Ataxia Spring Classic to raise money for research and support services for those living with Ataxia.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the death of my Dad, who lost his battle with Cerebellar Ataxia after a prolonged period of 12 years of suffering. In his memory, and to acknowledge the 12 years during which he suffered from the illness, I am setting myself the personal challenge to run 12 marathons in 12 months to raise much needed funds for research and support for those suffering with this debilitating illness.
I am raising money in order to do a sponsored skydive on 16th September 2017. The money donated for this sponsored skydive will go to the charity Ataxia UK.
I am currently working as fundraising intern at Ataxia UK, and I would love to raise some money for this incredible charity!

Not letting my diagnosis slow me down, I am training for the Brighton Half marathon this February.
'Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get!' My husband didn't know he was going to develop ataxia but thanks to the work of specialist nurses and consultants and their continuous research - life is made a little easier for sufferers and their families across the UK.
I am running this marathon to raise funds for the charity and just as importantly, to raise awareness. Estimates from recent studies say that there are at least 10,000 adults and around 500 children in the UK with a progressive ataxia.
On the 25th of September I am going to be running a half marathon. I know - I wouldn’t have ever thought I would… I surprise myself! I will be running in the memory of my friend Nicola Batty and to raise funds and awareness for Ataxia UK.

We hope to raise awareness and show support to everyone affected by Ataxia!

My sister Jan became ill with ataxia 10 years ago, is now wheelchair reliant and as yet has no firm diagnosis. She bears this with amazing fortitude as does her husband Dennis who cares for her day in day out, with love and incredible dedication. I am posting this on Carers Day and would like to say a huge thank you to him.
My aim is to raise awareness of Ataxia and raise much needed funds for research. A massive thank you to everybody who donates-you will make a difference

Hi, I am raising money for Ataxia UK because ataxia is in my family and I know how hard it is for an affected person when she don't have any support. Ataxia UK provides all the necessary information and help.
I am raising money to help find a cure for ataxia as sadly a friend of mine was diagnosed with ataxia and there is no cure at this time.

My Sister has Ataxia and it is tremendously important that I raise as much money as possible to support the charity.
