Walking a short distance may seem easy to most people, but for those with multiple sclerosis (MS) it can be a real challenge. Despite this, members of the Chilterns MS Centre will be walking a mile through Aylesbury town centre on 22 September and they would love people to join them.
This local charity offers people with MS treatment to help keep them mobile, empowering them to lead happy lives. But it costs over £1m annually to keep the Centre going. Over the past four years, this event has raised more than £100,000 and provided over 2,850 hours of treatment.
One of those to benefit is Tring resident Pete who will be taking part. ‘Since being diagnosed over 20 years ago my mobility has gradually decreased,’ he said. ‘Without the support of the physio team, I would be far less mobile than I am today. I was involved in the first year of Walk the MS Mile, and shall be taking part again this year to help such a fantastic place.’
The walk, starts in Market Square at 11am. Visit www.walkthemsmile.org
