My Goal

I am making every step count this February

This February, I am taking part in BrainWalk and walking, jogging or running as far as I can to improve my own health and wellbeing and help save lives! 

I am raising money for the Encephalitis Society, a cause close to my heart.
Encephalitis is a neurological condition that can be devastating. Here are five facts you may not know: 


1. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain.

2. It is caused by an infection or through the immune system attacking the brain.

3. Anyone can be affected by encephalitis – no matter their age, gender or ethnicity.

4. It has a high death rate and survivors are often left with an acquired brain injury and life-changing consequences.

5. It is more common in many countries than motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, bacterial meningitis and cerebral palsy.

One person is diagnosed with encephalitis every minute across the world, and life for them and their loved ones will never be the same again.

Every donation I receive will go to the Encephalitis Society, helping accelerate understanding and awareness of encephalitis and ensuring that those affected by this serious neurological condition get the crucial help and support they need. Please help if you can.

We are still collecting for our Encephalitis Brain Walk, which finishes tomorrow.  Thanks to all who have supported this worthy cause but if you haven't yet done so, it would be amazing if you will. 🙂

I wish I had known more!

Wednesday 16th Feb
Last year out of the blue my wife contracted encephalitis from the HSV virus. Despite making amazing progress, she passed away following recurring seizures. I hope that the funds our team raises will help in making others aware of the seriousness of the illness and lead to more positive outcomes.
