Manchester Half Marathon
On Sunday 14th October our wonderful office administrator Mel will be running the Manchester Half Marathon to raise money for Endometriosis UK. This is a cause very close to Mel’s heart having suffered with the condition since the age of 15. She has spent many years dealing with chronic pain, taking various medications and undergoing several surgeries, all in the hope of one day leading a normal life.
Endometriosis is a chronic and debilitating condition which affects women and girls of a child bearing age. Currently around 1.5 million women in the UK are living with varying severities of the condition and Endometriosis UK is a charity dedicated to raising funds for research and support.
Mel has never done anything like this before and had given up hope of ever being well enough to take part in such an event, so crossing that finish line will mean to the world to her.
To help Mel reach and surpass her target please visit her just giving page and donate: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/melissa-rosser
The company has offered to match her final fundraising total, so no matter how big or small the amount please donate to this great cause!
We’ll be checking back in again with Mel closer to the event to see how her fundraising is going.
