Meet the winners of this year's Friends of MS-UK Awards!
Every day this week, we'll be revealing each of the well-deserved winners and finding out, in their own words, what it means to be awarded such an accolade...
Suzy Cohen aka 'Miss Sparkle'
Since 2011, ‘Miss Sparkle’ has been inspiring those around her to support MS-UK. Susan has raised over £21,000 for the charity and has run eight marathons, not to mention taking part in many other events! Above all, Suzy has made an amazing achievement this year, as she has enabled MS-UK to reach out to 28 new supporters, all of who are runners Suzy has recruited into the Virgin Sport British 10k event.
Susan has always been surrounded by multiple sclerosis (MS), through friends and family, and chose to fundraise for MS-UK because we offer practical, unbiased information and support to anyone affected by MS.
She said: 'This award comes as a little bit of a surprise, but I feel very humbled to even have been considered. I’m just doing what I do best and that’s running, then boring everyone so much that they sponsor me just to shut up! I’m looking forward to receiving the trophy, which I will display very proudly next to my ‘MS-UK sponsor me’ table where I work, I’m sure people will feel even more generous for future events.'
