Walks, Treks & Challenge Events
Harbor Family and friends summit Moel Famau
The family and friends of Stephen Harbor all got to the summit of the extremely misty Moel Famau on the English/Welsh border, all while fundraising for the MSA Trust. With kids, dogs and friends in tow, they all found their way to the top, raising over £1200 pounds in memory of Stephen, who would have been 70 the day of the trek.
“We hope we have in some small way helped towards funding research to discover how symptoms of MSA can be delayed, and for other families to be able to spend a little longer with their loved ones.”
A huge thank you and well done to you all!
Team Shaw hike the South Coast Challenge
“The whole weekend of the South Coast Challenge was fantastic!!!!
The sun shone, the hills were huge 🙂 and it was hard!!! We started at 9am and finished at 10.30pm; a huge effort from the whole group over the 55km!
We met so many people and I genuinely can’t remember how many people we spoke to about MSA, the Trust and what it is; people like me who had never heard of it until recently.
Thank you for your support and providing materials; all of which were utilized!
The total in donations to date on Just Giving is £3560…..there is still more coming in and my nephew Peter Meier in Team Shaw is doing brilliantly too; so currently well over £4000 In total.” – Jenny
Team Shaw comprised of…..

Pam and Pals Canal Walk for MSA Trust
Whilst on holiday in North Wales, Pam’s friends Vera and Jane, decided to walk both the Montgomery and Llangollen canals in memory of Pam’s mum, who sadly lost her battle with MSA. Vera and Jane managed to cover 85 miles during the week and raised over £500 in the process. What wonderful friends, thank you ladies for your incredible support and dedication!
Andy & Despina hike Peru’s Inca Trail for MSA
“It was both a challenge and humbling experience. We decided to get involved with this charity after seeing just what this condition can do to someone so close and how invaluable a network can be to support them. With over £500 in donations from friends, family and colleagues, the final push to Macchu Picchu became an exhilarating experience, given the support and wishes from everyone. I’m now looking for the next adventure to raise more awareness of MSA and what the Trust does for those recently diagnosed and their families”. – Andy & Despina.
In October, Andy and Despina hiked the Inca Trail in Peru, in support of Drew’s father who has MSA and in aid of the Trust. Well done to you both on completing the trek, what an incredible way to show your support!
The St Patrick’s Oldboys take on the INVLCBL Run for MSA!
“We decided to get involved with the MSA Trust as Gareth, David and I are brothers and our Uncle, David Foley, was diagnosed with MSA. After speaking with his daughter’s, our cousins, Esther and Rachel, we decided we would like to do something to raise money and awareness for the charity! We raised money using Virgin Money and asked our friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor us as a team and we raised over £400”. – Lewis Parsons
The St Patrick’s Oldboys decided to support their uncle, David, by taking part in the tough obstacle course that is INVNCBL Run. They managed to raise over £400 for the Trust, excellent work guys!
Dougie climbs Mount Errigal for MSA
“This charity is one that is close to my heart and my family, as someone very close to me, Big Shaun, has this rare neurological condition. During the climb, at no point was I going to give up, even though my legs tried to a few times. Climbing Mount Errigal was a great personal achievement as I never thought I would have been able to do it without training. I also raised money for a great cause, allowing the MSA Trust to continue their work and support families that need it, just as they have done for Valerie and Big Shaun” – Dougie Doherty.
Dougie climbed Mount Errigal in County Donegal, Ireland, in aid of the MSA Trust and raised over £500! Great work Dougie.
