From Scottish newspaper the Edinburgh Evening News:
Edinburgh Kiltwalk 2019: Bethany Christian Trust volunteer living with fibromyalgia to raise funds for Capital's homeless
A YOUNG woman living with a life-limiting physical condition is set to go the extra mile for the Capital’s homeless population after signing up for a marathon charity challenge.
Emma Dolphin wants to “push herself to the limit” in September as she joins thousands of other kilt-clad competitors for the annual Edinburgh Kiltwalk.
The 26-year-old, who lives with fibromyalgia, will be joined by fiancé Joe Lee and dog Seb on the 26-mile walk as she aims to raise funds for the Bethany Christian Trust.
The condition causes pain all over the body as well as extreme fatigue, muscle stiffness, difficulty sleeping and problems with memory and concentration.
However, despite the “unthinkable” task ahead of her, Emma, 26, hopes to inspire others to overcome their physical barriers.
She said: “This walk is going to be a major challenge for me – I suffer from fibromyalgia which makes extensive physical exercise a challenge.”
