Pembroke Dock resident Peter Kraus is looking for help to raise money for the MNDA as he fulfils his pledge to walk 15,000 steps every day during January.

Peter explained:

“At the end of 2023 I heard that MNDA were looking for people to sign up by doing 15,000 steps a day to raise money for them and at the same time get healthier.

“On January 1, 2024 I pledged to do it every day for the whole of January. I’m doing just that and getting healthier by the day.

“I am looking for as much help as possible to raise as much money as I can.”

The Motor Neurone Disease Association created the ‘15,000 steps a day in January’ challenge to help fund care and support for families affected by MND and vital research into finding a cure.

Introducing the challenge, the charity urges: “Join our #TeamMND Facebook group, set up your fundraiser, and we'll send you a #TeamMND beanie hat to get you started! And if you raise over £150, you can claim your very own challenge medal!”

Peter added:

“Yes, it is a big challenge, especially as I am 71, but I don't ever think of that. All I know is that this is such a good cause. I was inspired so much by what was happening with Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield and that is why I joined up.”
