When MND and ALS/PLS affected my family, we realised how debilitating this disease truly is. I'm swimming to hopefully help fund research to help beat ALS. This is a disease that urgently needs support and resources, there is no cure at present and is a diagnosis many fear due to people being imprisoned in their own bodies, ultimatly unable to move, eat or breathe.
I am swimming this race in particular for my aunt Caroline, who loves adventure, live music and Mamma Mia. She was diagnosed two years ago, and has shown unbelieveable strength after this diagnosis, and the whole family would be so greatful of any donations made to this worthy cause.
If the weather is good, please feel free to come out and support the event! All posters, well wishes and crossed fingers for not accidentally drinking canal water welcome.
Thank you <3
