We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

George Coombes

8 years ago next month my family lost my sister aged 29 leaving her 9 year old daughter to be brought up by my Mum. My sister had severe seizures on a daily basis which meant her quality of life wasn't as high as she deserved for it to be.

I love my running, but it really does giving me such an extra boost knowing I'll be making my family doubly proud. This will be my first marathon so I'd be delighted to complete it in under 4 hours.
