Dad suddenly passed away last August, 2019. He bravely faced the challenges associated with a rare neurodegenerative disorder called Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). Over time, Dad was robbed of activities he loved to do, one being running. The last half marathon I ran was with Dad.
Mum bravely fought on caring for Dad and on the morning he died, she showed immense bravery. Mum's heroes that day were the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance medics - a whole team there to do the very best they could.
Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance receive no direct funding from the Government or National lottery and rely only on the generosity of us. On Sunday the 29th of March, I will be running the Weston Super Half in memory of Dad, whilst also raising some (or a lot hopefully) of money for this amazing charity.
