Run for charity
The Solihull Group of the Multiple Sclerosis Society is delighted to be the chosen charity of KP Events for the 2020 Solihull Half Marathon.
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease which affects the nervous system. In MS, the body’s immune system attacks the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. The coating around the nerve fibres (myelin) is damaged, and this then interrupts messages from the brain to the body.
The Group provides support for those people living in the Solihull area who have MS and their families. This is done in a variety of ways – they:
- have a specially adapted minibus to take people on social outings
- run physio, exercise and activity classes with trained professionals
- hold drop-in sessions and social events
- provide a help line which gives advice and guidance
- offer complimentary therapies and chiropody
However, they can only provide this support with the help of the local community. All the money they raise in Solihull is spent in Solihull. They are always looking for individuals who’d like to fundraise for them or organisations who would like to adopt them as their Charity of the Year. Please contact them on 07941 416303 if you need support or would like to support them!
If you’d like to take part in this event they can send you a fundraising pack which contains a t-shirt or vest, sponsor form and fundraising tips. Just go to http://tiny.cc/MSSolihullHalf – then ‘Sign Me Up’ and follow the links from there. Remember to indicate that you want the money you raise to go to the Solihull Group. Any problems, just give them a call on 07941 416303.
