Kathryn's Wolf Run 10K for her mum and for FMA UK

Kathryn Moore-Smith together with her boyfriend Adam and friend Kaytlin will run in the Summer 10k Wolf Run on 3rd June in Leicester to raise funds for FMA UK because Kathryn’s mum and Adam’s step mum live with fibromyalgia.

Kathryn told us: ‘’My Mum and several other people I know suffer with FM and it is heartbreaking to see how badly it affects their day to day life and that they just have to deal with it as there isn't enough known about the illness for there to be a better treatment for it. I spent some time googling about Fibromyalgia and looking for charities and found your webpage and decided that this is the charity I wanted to raise money and awareness for.

I did a Wolf Run a couple of years ago just for fun, and over the last year or so I've wanted to do another one, but I wanted to do it for charity and actually train for it properly as the first one I did I didn't really do much training for and as much as I enjoyed the experience I regretted not training for it! So with that in mind I started training and knowing I was doing it for a good cause has kept me motivated to keep training! 

I have chosen to raise money for Fibromyalgia UK as it is a debilitating illness which isn't that well known, yet more and more people are being diagnosed with it and there just isn't enough known about it for there to be a "cure" or proper treatment available. Sufferers just have to deal with it as best they can. My Mum has it and its heart breaking seeing how much she struggles day to day and there's not anything that can be done to help her. So I have chosen this charity to hopefully raise more awareness of Fibromyalgia in the hope that more can be done to treat it and to help sufferers cope and manage it’’.
