Mum’s fundraising run to fund research into rare neurological condition

A Bramley mum is set to run a 2.5K giant inflatables course to raise money for a national charity.

Christine Hamshere, of Moorland View, set up Cure INAD UK in 2021 to raise funds and awareness for Infantile Neuro Axonal Dystrophy (INAD), a rare neurological condition her eight-year-old daughter Zoe Lightfoot was diagnosed with as a toddler.

The charity funds urgent research to find a cure for the inherited disorder, which has a life expectancy of five to 10 years.

Christine said there are currently 22 adults and children signed up to do the 2.5k giant inflatables course at Harewood House on 29 June to raise money for Cure INAD UK.

“I’m doing this one, along with Zoe’s five-year-old brother Alex and friends, who are all from Leeds,” she said. “There are quite a few young children doing the race with us.

“I haven’t done any running before. We are all doing it for Zoe and to help fundraise for a cure for INAD.”

Donations can be made here.

The journey of Christine’s family, and in particular her daughter Zoe Lightfoot, has been well documented here at WLD.
