This Summer I am attempting to raise funds for Distonia Uk by taking part in the Distonia Around the World Challenge

Thanks for visiting my profile.   Over the past year or so, in an effort to lose weight, I decided to commence exercising.  I found that not only did I lose weight but am thoroughly enjoying my regime.  I hope to convert my participation in exercise into benefitting others by using it to fundraise. 

I will be taking part by walking, cycling,  pilates and playing tennis. I will travel through villages, along sea fronts, through nature reserves, explore castles and cultural sites to reach my goals.

Why choose Dystonia UK?  During the Covid-19 crisis smaller charities have suffered from a lack of donations and Dystonia UK is one of them.  It came to my attention when, after a serious road accident my daughter developed the condition.  A neurological condition which causes painful spasms and tremors, we needed to find out more about it.  Dystonia UK was the only place we could get the information and they gave my daughter & us the support we needed.  She is now an Ambassador for the charity.  Many people have dystonia, not just after accidents, stroke patients can often develop a form of it.  The charity is there when you need it.

Dystonia UK is the only UK national charity dedicated to helping people affected by dystonia.

Help me put dystonia on the world map and change the lives of people who often feel alone and forgotten by taking on the #DystoniaAroundTheWorld challenge yourself or donating to my fundraising page.

Thank you so much for your support!
