My name is Ian Brand. My ‘twin’ brother Keith is supported by Certitude, Keith was diagnosed with Phenyletonuria (PKU) when he was born in 1958.
His early and teenage years were a difficult time for us all. However, like many, Keith overcame adversity with determination and a ‘cheeky’ smile. Our parents died far too early, but as his younger ‘twin’, I will always be there for him, as will our family and many, many friends.
To support Certitude’s 12 miles of Christmas fundraising campaign, I am going to do a minimum of 100,000 steps between 1st December 2022 until 24th December 2022.
That’s an average of 4166 steps per day.
All amounts raised will enrich the lives of so many people who are supported by Certitude across London. The funds will help people to discover new skills and become more connected in their communities.
Finally, a line that I take with me every day of my life is ‘His welfare is my concern’.
It’s a line taken from ‘He ain’t heavy he’s my brother’, by The Hollies released in 1969.
