Running For Mobility

Posted in: 15th November 2010 by erica

A triathlon runner is hoping to raise enough money to pay for a pair of mobility scooters by competing in nearly two dozen ‘ironman’ events this year.

Worcester News reports Neill Crump was inspired to take up the challenge in memory of his father, who died from multiple sclerosis (MS) 20 years ago.

The newspaper stated he decided to honour the anniversary by competing in 20 endurance events including triathlons, road running and long-distance swimming.

So far, he has taken part in 19 challenges that have raised over £2,000 for the MS Society and he hopes to be able to fund the purchase of two mobility scooters for sufferers of the disease by reaching his target of £3,000.

According to the charity, around 100,000 people in the UK are affected by the illness, which can reduce mobility by damaging the central nervous system.

We at One Stop Mobility think this is an excellent way to raise money for charity.
