Runner Spotlight – Meet Will and Darren

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing some of the stories of our amazing runners..

Will Shand, 59 and Darren Winter, 53 are starting their run from Will’s house in Worthing, running to the Brighton Half start line on Madeira Drive, running the half and then running home again! A whopping 43.1 miles in total to raise money for Sussex MS Centre!

Will said: “I run a lot, and the idea of asking people to give me money to run a half marathon is a bit like asking for funding to drink a cup of coffee; however the Sussex MS Centre is such a good charity that I wanted to find a way to do them justice. They provide a space, a community and services for people with MS that they can’t get anywhere else. My wife, Annette, has had MS for over thirty years and this centre has provided the most useful support she has ever had.”

“So, the plan is that my friend Daz and I will run from my house to the Brighton Half Marathon (15 miles), then run the event (13 miles) and then run home again (15 miles….probably into the wind….in February!). This sounds hard, but is nowhere near as hard as having MS. We hope to raise £1,000 for the centre, to keep it working and helping people.”
