Kelvin Bird tells us why he and group of his friends have decided to raise money for the MS Trust by running 10 miles from Hungerford to Newbury.
On the 16th of October 2013 Janet Ricca sadly passed away following a long battle against multiple sclerosis. She was a loving caring person who always loved a game of Bingo on a Friday night. Family was always her thing, no matter how bad she got she always had a smile on her face which would light up the room and make everyone else smile. She was such a strong person who would fight with such courage and determination. I am so proud to have known someone like her and she is sadly missed by all her friends and family.
In honour of Janet Ricca I have decided to do another fundraising run so I have organised one on the 29th of March 2015. I am going to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Trust by doing a 10 mile run from Hungerford to Newbury. I promise with all my heart that I will be strong and complete the run. In November 2013 we did the same run and raised more than £1,500, so this year we would love to raise more for MS. With the help of Hayden Ricca, Liam Kumar, Edward Bird, Aaron Bone, Gavin Mosdell and David Fisher, I am hoping to raise in the region of £2,500.
