Running in the family

articlemain

Herts father-and-daughter Max Furman and Laura Margolis ran to raise over £7,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre.

Laura’s husband Adam was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago and Mr Furman said it had been hard for the couple, “especially as they have two small children. There’s nothing I can really do for Adam, but I thought if I ran for an MS charity, it would be helping him in some small way.”

When he told his daughter of his intention to run, “she said I was mad at my age [60] to even consider it. But the next day she called me back and asked if she could have a go too. I was shocked, especially as she would rather drive around Brent Cross car park six or seven times looking for a space to save having to walk a little bit”.

They completed the race together in 5 hours 55 minutes.
