Jenny's Marathon Efforts Raise Awareness for Motor Neurone Disease
One of our incredible team members, Jenny, is gearing up to participate in the Manchester Marathon on April 16th, 2023.

We are so proud to support her as she takes on this impressive challenge, which will see over 30,000 runners take to the streets of Manchester.

Jenny is running to raise funds and awareness for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a charity that is close to her heart. MND is a devastating disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, leaving people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk, swallow and eventually breathe. Six people are diagnosed with the disease every day, and up to 5,000 people are fighting MND at various stages of the disease.

The charity works to improve the care and support for people with MND, their families, and carers. They also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments, bringing us closer to a cure for MND. In addition, they campaign to raise awareness ensuring that the needs of people with MND and everyone who cares for them are recognised by the wider society.

Jenny began her training for the marathon in January, following a customised running plan created by Jacqui Maxwell of Cadence Coaching. The program includes four weekly runs: one tempo, one long run, and two easy/steady runs. This is combined with two to three strength training/gym sessions per week to build strength and prevent injury, and this side of Jenny’s training has been planned out by Matty Tunnah of Matty Tunnah Coaching.

We are thrilled that Jenny has taken on this challenge and her dedication and hard work have been an inspiration to us all. We are proud to have such a driven and motivated individual on our team, and we look forward to supporting her every step as she takes on this incredible challenge.

Good luck, Jenny!
