Stephen Berson of Hunters Estate Agents in Leeds will be taking part in the Phycap Endurance Challenge on Saturday 25th February 2012. Read Stephen's story below...
"For as long as I can remember, and probably longer, I have been trying to fight off the onset of middle age spread via what some will say is my addition to trying to keep fit.
I suppose in the scale of additictions, they could be a lot worse, but after nearly 40 years, I still need my daily fix and I am now going to combine this with trying to raise money for a truly heart-warming cause.
I will be taking part in a group Endurance Event at the David Lloyd Leeds on February 25th to raise money for a girl called Eve Williams who has Cerebral Palsy. Eve has been chosen to go to America to have a life changing operation that costs approximately £45,000.
Eve has been selected for "Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy" by the world renowned Dr TS Park at the St Louis Children's Hospital in Missouri, USA. SDR is a complex procedure that will give Eve a real shot at increased mobility and a fully independent life, both of which are just a distant dream today. We need to raise a minimum of £45,000 for the trip to America, an additional £30,000 will cover private physiotherapy for 2-3 years after the operation, this will be essential to maximising the benefits of the procedure.
I would be grateful of any kind donations to help Eve and her family fulfil their dream so that Eve will be able to walk unaided."
