Eddie Brady, from Plawsworth in Durham, recently completed a seven-day cycle of almost 290 miles along the west coast of Scotland, from Glasgow to Gretna in aid of the MS Society. See his justgiving page
He has now also challenged himself to take on the Ride London event on 4th August, cycling 100 miles in one day. The event raised over £12million for charity in 2018.
All funds raised by Eddie will go towards supporting local people in Durham who are affected by MS and to support further research into the condition nationally.
Eddie’s wife, Suzanne, was diagnosed with MS nine years ago and he has already raised thousands of pounds for MS research by cycling from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Tynemouth in North Tyneside, a journey of 150 miles, and then riding from Aberdeen to Edinburgh.
He said: “Breakthroughs in the relentless struggle against MS are only possible because people generously support the fight. Each hour of research costs around £90.
“In addition to research, I want to support the local North Durham group of the MS Society. Every day people in our own communities struggle to get out of bed, move around the house, get out to see friends or shop for essentials. All the things many of us take for granted. There are ways their lives can be made easier and raising funds can help provide transport, mobility aids and opportunities for people to come together.”
We are always grateful to anyone who raises funds on behalf of our group, and the MS Society nationally. There are more than 400 people living with MS in the North Durham area and anything anyone can do to raise those vital funds to help and support them is greatly appreciated.”
