Sci-fi author Keith Brooke will be running the Edinburgh Marathon this Sunday for Epilepsy Action.
His JustGiving page is here. Keith says:-
I hope you'll back me in raising money for Epilepsy Action - if not, you just know that my daughter Molly will hound you until you do, so you might as well do this the easy way.
Molly has had epilepsy since birth. She gets the full range of seizures which, coupled with the side-effects of her medication, has put a lot of obstacles in her way. But she has a lot of spirit. For example, she hasn't been able to go to school since she was about 13, but despite that she managed to get some good GCSEs this year, and is continuing to study from home. Epilepsy Action have been a big help to Molly, and those around her. Now it's time for us to pay some of that back.
This will be my first full marathon: your support makes a huge difference to me in tackling the challenge, and to people like Molly in helping them deal with a major and continuing challenge that's far greater than merely running 26 piddling little miles. 26.2, that is...
