A Buckie woman has completed a 100-mile cycle to raise cash for a charity which has supported her husband deal with the struggles of Multiple Sclerosis.
Stephanie Cormack cycled from her home in Buckpool to Nairn and back to raise more than £1,700 for the Moray branch of Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The 33-year-old hailed the charity for helping wheelchair bound partner Stephen regain his confidence after being diagnosed with the debilitating disease six years ago.
She previously ran a half marathon and skydived to raise money for the charity.
Mrs Cormack said: “It’s a charity so close to me.
“Since moving back to Moray from West Lothian in 2016, the support from the Moray branch of MS Society has been amazing.
“Stephen was struggling with going out with people seeing him in his wheelchair.
“He has since started wheelchair curling and it has given him so much confidence.
“It has been the best thing ever for him and he has made friends and gained confidence just to be himself.
“I remember helping at MS society coffee mornings with my grandma, who at the time was the chairperson of the MS Moray branch and I also witnessed first hand the struggles my grandad faced as he battled with the condition for years.”
She added: “I thought it would be an excellent challenge to take on that amount of miles and fundraise as well.
“Members of the Elgin Cycling Club also joined me on different parts of cycle which was great to have.
“This cycle was a huge challenge for me but it is nothing in comparison to the struggle of everyday tasks that people who have MS are faced with.”
She has been overwhelmed with the support for the cycle challenge and last night she hailed everyone for getting behind his fundraiser.
“People that I don’t know have sponsored me through my JustGiving page and there are a lot of anonymous people that have donated, ” she said.
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who donated.”
