26 miles and three years in the making

Tuesday August 14th sees the start of a social media campaign that will be followed by my good friend the editorial photographer Cris Barnett running 26 miles in a marathon.

Over three years the two of us have been travelling across England and over into Scotland collecting portraits and stories of people whose lives have been touched by motor neurone disease.

We’ll be publishing a portrait and story each day on social media for the next 26 days.

The aim is to raise awareness of MND and also funds for the fantastic Motor Neurone Disease Association.

A talented designer and editor are making our collection into a book that will be available for the MND Association’s 40th anniversary in 2019.

Instagram is the first stop to see each of the portraits and keep up with how we are doing:
