We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Nigel Pinegar

Last year my brother ran the London Marathon in order to raise awareness for epilepsy after his son had been suffering and was diagnosed in May 2011. So this year I figured it was my turn!

His son & my nephew, Freddy, is 8 years old. He is a very active and fit boy with loads of energy. He is a fantastic footballer, loves his swimming and has coped amazingly well with his epilepsy, despite the difficult side effects of the medication.

I have never run a full marathon before but I'm sure that knowing I am running for my nephew, and the fantastic Epilepsy Action, will keep me going. I am looking forward to the atmosphere, buzz on the day and more importantly the finish line!

I would love to raise £2,000 for Epilepsy action and would really appreciate your support by making a donation via my page: http://www.justgiving.com/Nigel-Pinegar
