PSPA supporter Amy Draper is currently in training for the Robin Hood Half Marathon.

Amy is taking on the running challenge on 25 September for her beloved grandad who passed away from PSP in 2013.

As a new runner, Amy has been fitting in as many runs possible in the lead up to the run and she is also fundraising for PSPA, who supported her and her family once her grandad was diagnosed.

Of her challenge, Amy said: “I am running the Robin Hood half marathon in September in memory of my Grandad who had been diagnosed with PSP. He lived with the condition for five years before he sadly passed away.

My grandad was everything to me, the bond we had was so special. I have always wanted to do something to raise money and awareness for PSP in his memory.

I took up running with my friend with the local running club the beginning of the year and we really started getting into it, we regularly run every week.

By all means we are not the fastest but we do really well and when I saw this opportunity and thought why not this is my chance!

I am currently trying to get as much running time in during the week as possible.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank PSPA for the support and time taken for my family through our journey with PSP.”
