Tough Mudder

2016 September 21

Help! I’m a 59 year old galloping to stay younger than my years, looking to do all those things that I though I could – should – have ticked off years ago.

So this is last ditch time…

Been in ‘training at Pinnacle with Fi Pocock (England Ladies Rugby team – Grrrr…) for a few weeks, so that I can get around a Tough Mudder course with a couple of others from Hamble Lifeboat.

We were just raising money for the Lifeboat


(It doesn’t receive any funds from the RNLI so its the Community of Hamble that supports this boat going out on average 100 times a year in all weathers to help others!)…

And then Alie died of MND. She was an old friend and one of the very best in the industry – and the events industry is just like a small family…

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is incurable. In most cases the patient remains completely conscious of all around them whilst the body gives up. This includes the lungs. So for many you end up slowly drowning and unable to do anything about it. Its no wonder that some/many MND sufferers opt for euthanasia.

All About Alie was set up by Alie and her Family to fund research into a cure for MND

So in a way the Lifeboat and AAA are both trying to stop the same thing – people drowning.

So the plan is to run, limp, crawl around this course on Saturday and raise money – some monies at least – that can then be split evenly between the two.

Both worthy. Both heart breaking in so many ways.

Can you help…?
