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
