Man with MS running the London Marathon hails benefits of exercise while living with incurable condition


Tom Cutts, 27, will run his first marathon on Sunday to raise funds for Colchester charity MS-UK after being diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS, which affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.

Since his diagnosis in October 2017, Mr Cutts has faced symptoms including chronic pain in his face, bowel issues, balance problems, and bouts of depression.

But the former semi-professional footballer, who vowed to run the marathon on the day of his diagnosis, told the Standard running has helped “take his mind off things” over the last two years.

This is an inspiring story of grit and determination to accomplish something with MS. Congratulations Tom, on reaching 162% of your goal.
