For those of you who don't know, ataxia is a progressive neurological disorder which affects speech, balance and coordination. The condition affects each individual differently, but typically, those with ataxia will eventually become wheelchair bound. There are over 90 different types of ataxia, and they can affect anyone at any age. It is estimated that there are 10,000 adults and 500 children in the UK with a progressive ataxia. There is currently no cure for ataxia.

A team of 10 of us will be taking part in the Zeus 'No fear On Wheels' Wheelchair Obstacle Race, in support of my client Vikki, who was diagnosed with Friedreich's ataxia 18 months ago. 

Please help us raise as much money as possible, to fund research into a cure for ataxia. Any donation, large or small will be gratefully received
