After 3 difficult years, my 4-year-old son George was diagnosed with eosinophilic colitis, a rare gastrointestinal disease that affects around 3.3 people in 100,000 this condition.

On the 6th of June 2021, I swam 2.4 miles, cycled 112 miles and ran 26.2 miles against the clock to help the charity that supports families and other young children with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases (EGIDS). 

That helped me to raise £3327!


Thank you to my supporters and sponsors. Your kindness makes a difference to George and many others through EOS Network's important work.

Currently, there is no known cure and no approved treatments.

This disease, although invisible on the outside, affects many aspects of George's life.

EOS Network is a voluntary run charity, 100% of donations fund their mission to ensure that every person with an EGID receives a prompt accurate diagnosis, the right treatment for them, and support to live with their condition.
