Kat Pond’s Brighton Marathon Challenge 2018

Apr 15, 2018 9:45 am

Preston Park, Brighton, UK

Kat’s son Bastian has a rare chromosome disorder called Phelan-McDermid Syndrome (PMS). It’s so rare that he is 1 in 4 million! PMS affects every aspect of his life. He has mobility difficulties including low-muscle tone, sleep problems, behavioural difficulties, medical needs and he is completely non-verbal. He will need additional support for the rest of his life.
Kat hasn’t been running for very long. She started running in 2016 to help lose weight and since losing 6½ stone with Slimming World, Kat has managed to maintain a healthy weight.
She has been plagued with niggles and injuries and broke her foot last summer and has constant knee pain. With April fast approaching she continues to feel like it’s 50/50 that she will complete the marathon. But she is a determined woman and you know what they say about determined women!!!
Please help Kat to make each mile a little easier by sponsoring her amazing challenge.
Kat is running for PMSF UK. To sponsor her and make a difference to our PMS families please click the link below:
Thank you in advance for your support – go Kat!
