Many months ago, in a moment of madness, I agreed to take part in a Tough Mudder.

I've successfully managed to bury my head in the sand long enough, but time is ticking, the event is fast-approaching and the fear has well and truly set in. Therefore I thought it's about time I started to raise those all-important funds!

My charity of choice is Ataxia UK. Most people won't have heard of ataxia, let alone know much about the condition, which makes raising awareness all the more important. Ataxia is the name given to a group of neurological disorders that affect balance, coordination, and speech. There are many different types of ataxia that can affect people in different ways. Anyone of any age can get ataxia.

Having worked with the organisation for close to two years, I've had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people whose lives have been affected by the condition. The ultimate goal is to find a cure for ataxia so all donations are hugely appreciated and will certainly be put to good use.

Wish me luck!
