The Edinburgh Kilomathon is on Sunday 8th April and Elspeth is running her first race since having TM in November 2012.
She says, 'I was very quickly diagnosed and had fabulous care at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. It was a long recovery, but I have been one of the lucky ones to make a fairly good one.'
Elspeth has raised over £1000 for the TM Society so far, and you can make a donation at her justgiving site. She says 'it's a way of saying thank you to you all for being there and I also wanted to raise awareness of the condition.'
An email with more information about the weekend will be sent out in December to all TM Society members who have registered a child who will be in the age range of 4 - 17 when the event occurs.
Joining the TM Society is free and only takes a minute or two - click here to join.
CONGRATULATIONS are in order to Anthony Mctaggart and Michael Jones who on 30th September completed a 93 mile bike ride in 8 hours and 3 minutes to raise money for the TMS. The weather was quite nice (not too hot) until the last hour where the heavens opened and we got soaked.
We had a lot of support there off the friends and family. Click here to add to our total.
Ravi and Ricci Hannah, plus other friends, cycled from Marble Arch to the Arc de Triomphe on 27th July 2017 raising over £3000 for the TM Society. Their mother Carol, who has had TM since 2011, is shown below in Paris at the finish line. Click here to see more or make a donation.
Thanks to Anne Hurt and Kath Crawford who raised £400 for the TM Society with their stand at the Tibshelf Carnival in Derbyshire on Saturday 22nd July 2017.
