Sam’s Support

May 16, 2021 | 0 comments

The reason I’m doing my Fothers Mission 24 is for people like Sam Perkins. He’s an inspiration, a hero, and a true gentleman, who should never have been dealt the awful hand of having to been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Sam is 39 years old and just over two years ago was diagnosed with MND. He has since set up the charity Stand Against MND to help the MNDA and Nottinghamshire Hospice.

I’m also delighted that Sam will be joining me in his wheelchair on mile 22 along Victoria Embankment – a place that holds a special place in Sam’s heart as he explains in the video below:

A massive thank you to Sam for his support and I can’t wait to see him on the mission.

If you’d like to get involved with Fothers Mission 24 and raise vital funds for people like Sam and his family, you can do so in many ways. Donations can be made via a dedicated JustGiving page, you can become a sponsor and enjoy a range of benefits. Alternatively, we appreciate all the support so feel free to spread the word and share this website with friends, family and colleagues or follow me on social media (links in the footer).
