Thanks for all the messages.
I do think the large charities do struggle to get the balance right in wanting to support their runners but not wanting to allocate large sums of money in providing that support.
When I asked the MS Society, who I ran for in NY, what support they were intending to offer me, I got a reply of a monthly newsletter and that was all.
I would love to choose a local, small charity to run for, and maybe raising up to £1,000, but they do not have a golden bond place.
