Walk a mile to raise aware­ness

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Amanda Lamont AMER­SHAM mayor walked the MS mile for the Chiltern MS Cen­tre.

Coun­cil­lor Amanda Lamont joined other walk­ers and wheel­ers on the spon­sored walk on Satur­day, Septem­ber 5.

Walk­ing along­side the mayor was Carol Yeend from Amer­sham who was di­ag­nosed with MS in 1988 and is one of more than 440 mem­bers who ben­e­fit from the ser­vices of­fered by the cen­tre.

Carol said: “I took part in Walk the MS Mile be­cause I feel it is some­thing I can do, and en­joy do­ing, to help the cen­tre raise aware­ness and funds. I have be­come in­creas­ingly aware of the im­por­tance of the cen­tre in so many lives and in so many ways. I used to walk a lot, I think it’s about time I re­minded my legs what they are sup­posed to do and raise some money while do­ing it.”

Walk the MS mile is the flag­ship event of the 30th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of the Chilterns MS Cen­tre, which helps pa­tients man­age their Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis (MS) symp­toms. Thirty walks of one mile each are be­ing held on each day this month across Bucks and be­yond.
