Team Ward-Great North Run - Newcastle upon Tyne -

Natalie Cummings and friends have joined together to raise money for MNDA NI in memory of Ward Cummings.
Raising funds and awareness by the Belfast half marathon or the Great North Half marathon, some doing both!
Natalie's story
My dad, Ward Cummings, was diagnosed with it June 2016. At first I didn't know what the disease was. The kind my dad had was fast progressive. When we were told that he had it, he was only given 6 months, it was that progressive. When he knew what he had his first words were "I'm going to fight this".
Sadly on August 4th 2016 he passed away. The disease took him away from us. It only gave him 9 weeks. He passed away in Belfast Royal Hospital with his family around him, age 56.
