I have always been a sporty person. And so, after all the MS Trust has provided for me, I just wanted to give something back! They provide such a great service to MS health professionals but also obviously to people with MS too. I’m on their website all the time, looking up information for people I work with and learning things myself. I’m mentoring an occupational therapy student at the moment and she’s using the MS Trust website a lot too for her studies during her placement.
I’ve decided to learn how to ride a road bike, because I’ve never done that before, so I’m very excited, if not a little nervous. I have begun training. I’m up to about 25 miles a session but I need to start upping it a little and getting on with it really. 100 miles a day for 4 days! It’s going to be hard, but it will be worth it.
I would be delighted if anyone would like to sponsor me through my website: virginmoneygiving.com/gillyburdon
