Ramblers set to raise funds for muscular dystrophy – The Gazette

A GROUP of ramblers are heading in the right direction to raise funds and awareness of a debilitating illness.

Mairi Leitch, 34, from Lochwinnoch is organising a Move a Mile fundraiser, which takes place at Castle Semple on Saturday, from noon until about 4pm.

Proceeds will go to the Muscular Dystrophy UK charity.

Both Mairi and her 10-year-old son Aaron are affected by muscular dystrophy (MD).

Aaron, who attends Lochwinnoch Primary, was diagnosed with the illness two years ago.

Mairi’s older son Marc, 12, and other family members have also been diagnosed with mild forms of MD.

Symptoms include cramps, sore muscles and pain in the legs and arms, however the worst part is fatigue, according to Mairi.
