Luke Bowes, from Thurrock, will run 100km to help those living with fibromyalgia

Luke told us: ‘’My Mum and one of my closest friends, Abbie, suffer from Fibromyalgia. Since I've known about my Mum's and Abbie's Fibromyalgia I now know another 2 other people who suffer from the condition.

Whilst my mum has found something that helps, she still suffers some days more than others and that was only after being lucky enough to get some private advice/treatment something that not everyone is able to afford. Unfortunately Abbie has not found something that works for her yet, as I mentioned above treatment is very much pot luck and constantly trying different things, which is incredibly difficult in a situation where you are unable to work, yet you don't get any support to help, no matter how much you try! To see them on their worst days is very upsetting, they can be in so much pain that they struggle to get out of bed and perform simple tasks we take for granted.

So I'm planning to run/jog 100K between London and Brighton in May 2018 in order to try and raise as much money as possible to help raise awareness and support other fibromyalgia suffers. What my body will feel training and running that distance is, to be honest, probably a small taster of what they can go through on a daily basis. 

Any donation or support you can give is greatly appreciated! Thank you!’’.
