Our friend Keith (chef at PARKYS FROM 2011 - 2012) diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Motor Neurone Disease in September 2012, the day after us celebrating his 49th birthday and just weeks before marrying his fiance, Susie.

Doctors were unable to discover the cause of this pain. After months of tests Keith was finally referred to a specialist in Lisbon where he was given the devastating news that he had Motor Neuron Disease.

Keith had travelled to Lisbon on his own as his fiance, Susie was in the UK looking after her mother, Josie, who had been diagnosed with Cancer.

Susie flew back to be with Keith the next day. Their world had fallen apart.

Since that day Keith has made numerous trips back to the UK, firstly to see specialists for confirmation of the diagnosis, and subsequent trips in a desperate bid to seek all available resources. They were shocked to find there is very limited funding and specialist knowledge available.

Obviously the cost of flights and equipment have taken their toll and with limited funds Keith & Susie are finding things difficult to say the least.

Currently Keith has lost the use of both his arms and his neck muscles are weakening, this is a progressive disease, acting rapidly in Keith's case. He can no longer do basic tasks himself such as cooking, drinking, feeding, washing, personal hygene etc.

We need your help!

In support of Keith, "RUSSIAN" Tony and "MAD" Marc, both aged 38 has bravely (or perhaps madly!) volunteered to cycle from Alte, commencing on 25th April and will arrive in Portsmouth, 6th May. They are aiming to complete 80-120km per day, cycling @10rs per day in order to raise as much as possible for Keith.
If anyone would like to sponsor with kit, gear, accommodation, spare tyres, inner tubes etc, anything would be greatly appreciated!

Total distance: 1109km
Estimated time: 10 days riding
Total accent: 6098m
Start elevation: 169m Alte
Finish elevation: 3m Santander
Max elevation: 1294m
