Bryony's London Marathon
On 21st April 2024, Bryony will be joining Team Jed and running the London Marathon to raise money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy UK
40,000+ people will run the London Marathon this year. One Team Jed runner. A load of Team Jed supporters
Bryony has set a target of raising £3,000 for Team Jed (which we know she will smash)
The money raised will continue to fund the 3 year research project by Dr Zhou on molecular patch treatment
We are very proud to welcome Bryony Kittrick to Team Jed. Read about her upcoming Marathon in her own words below:
'On the 21st April 2024, I will be running the London Marathon to raise funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
I’m by no means a runner so this will be my biggest challenge yet! Muscular Dystrophy UK & Team Jed are charities that are incredibly close to my heart as my best friend, Jed Thirkettle was diagnosed with Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 8.
I met Jed on our first day of university in 2018 and what a journey we’ve had… He inspires me and everyone around him every single day. Anyone who knows Jed knows how passionate he is about this charity, so much so he has recently raised over £20,000 by completing a 24-hour workout! This was a huge challenge for Jed and I’m so happy I was able to support for the full 24 hours with his amazing parents, Donna & Michael.
After completing the challenge, I decided it was my time to show him how passionate I am about Team Jed and how much I’ve been inspired by him. Unfortunately for me, this is by running 26.2 miles through London. Jed has me in hysterics 24/7 so it’s only fair to let him have a day of enjoyment and watch me suffer!
Any donations are hugely appreciated and will be making a massive difference in funding research into the condition.
Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity for 111,000 people living with muscle-wasting conditions. They are making a difference today, providing vital information and support to help people live as independently as possible. They are making a difference for tomorrow, accelerating progress in research and driving the campaign for access to emerging treatments.'
Words can't describe how grateful I am to have Bryony in my life and supporting me. All of us at Team Jed and Muscular Dystrophy UK will be cheering Bryony on from the sidelines on the day!
