    Jo And Ruth2012 is a very special year for Jo and Ruth Gibson and to celebrate they have chosen to fundraise for MSRC…

    “Throughout 2012, we will be raising money for the MS Resource Centre by doing numerous different challenges.

    2012 will be 12 years since we sadly lost our mother following her long battle with MS and June 2012 would have been her 60th birthday, so we wanted to do something that would mark this occasion.

    Our mum was only 47 years old when she died, and lived an active life before coming wheelchair and ultimately, bedbound.

    For this reason we will be doing various different challenges and sporting events throughout the year. "

    We have a challenging year ahead of us; we will be doing the following:

    JO:

    "We hope to raise at least £6,000 throughout the year and to raise awareness of MS in the process. Ideally we would like to raise far more than this, but as we are normally quite active anyway we need to come up with ideas that people consider challenging enough to sponsor us for!”
