Marketing manager Amanda Morris is undertaking ‘forty challenges before forty’ to fund-raise for the Stroke Association.
The 39-year-old from Wellhead, Halifax has created the challenge to raise money and awareness for the Stroke Association after her best friend survived a stroke last year.
Amanda has given herself a year to raise £2,013 for the Stroke Association as her best friend, Paul Thomas from Highroad Well, had a stroke in December last year, at the age of 36.
She said: “I’m really looking forward to completing my challenges, hopefully I’ll do them all before my birthday in January 2014! I chose to raise money for the Stroke Association because they are there to offer support after a stroke. When Paul gets home it will be a long road to recovery, but with the right help, he’ll be able to adjust to life after stroke as best he can.”
Amanda has already raised some money after completing seven out of her 40 challenges. Some of her friends and family are taking part in some of the challenges from swimming 40 lengths, fasting for 40 hours and a 40 pub bar crawl.
