Helens Story

Over the last year I have increased my running distance and looked for a new challenge. To run for a charity quite close to home seemed very fitting. My step nan suffered for many years from MS... I remember from a young age visiting the MS centre and waiting patiently whilst she went into a huge submarine (oxygen tank)
