Earlier this year my Dad died after a long illness due to a neurological disorder, or ataxia. He got excellent support from carers and the ataxia community in Ireland. I'm running 100km in one day to raise money for this community to help other sufferers.

In July I will run from Oxford to Swindon along the Ridgeway, a distance of 100km in one day in the race to the stones.

I am doing this to both raise awareness of ataxia and to raise money for the community to help current and future sufferers.
