Susie Cameron crosses the finish line for Motor Neurone Disease
Well done to Susie for completing the iconic Great North Run in Newcastle on 7 September 2014 with a time of 2 hours and 50 minutes. This success is only second to the fact she was also able to break her £1000 fundraising target raising £1165 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Susie, Head of Client Relations at Bank Partners, ran with Mo Farrah (well, a few hours behind him) and 57,000 people. She triumphed in one of the world’s greatest half marathons to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).
MNDA is recently best known for the Ice Bucket Challenges that many people have been involved in around the world. Motor Neurone Disease attacks the motor neurones or nerves in the brain and spinal cord. This means that messages gradually stop reaching muscles, leading to weakness and wasting.
Rob Clough, a friend of the Bank Partners team is one of thousands of people who live with the incurable disease; he recently uploaded his own Ice Bucket Challenge video thanking everyone for their fund raising efforts.
After the race, a tired but elated Susie said: “My legs were in so much pain I could barely walk but I couldn’t stop smiling from what an incredible experience it was. Please spare a few pounds to sponsor me for this great cause”
