As many of you may know, last year John Ford was diagnosed with motor neurone disease after a period of ill health.  Fran, Pie, Finn and Euan are raising money for charity.  Fran writes:

My 57 year old brother was diagnosed in March last year with this cruel disease.  Since then he has lost weight, become progressively weaker and is now struggling to walk and talk.

 We have been inspired by Kevin Sinfield running 7 marathons in 7 days for his team mate Rob Burrow, and want to raise as much money as we can for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, who have been helping us deal with this terrible progressive disease.  

As a family we are going to travel the total distance of 7 miles for each of the 7 days, either by walking or Kayaking.
