Rock n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon 2021

Liverpool Rock and Roll Marathon. Support Corben in his marathon.

Corben Roberts is a loving husband of Amy, a CRPS sufferer. Corben has decided to help raise awareness of CRPS, through running the Rock n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon.

This is what Corben has said:

Due to a rare disease called Synovial Chondromatosis (a type of non-cancerous tumour that arises in the lining of a joint), Amy underwent a total hip replacement in 2018. This was supposed to get her life back. Initially, her recovery went OK and things started to improve. However, since early 2019, a new condition has been diagnosed. Amy has developed CRPS – Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Corben is taking part in the Great North Run in 2019, wearing a t-shirt saying: 'Amy can't so I run!'

Amy has been suffering and had “issues” with her hip but no one, not even I, will know how much pain she lives with every day.  Despite her pain on our wedding day in May 2019, Amy spent the whole evening on the dance floor with a smile on her face. Proving how she won’t let this horrible condition beat her. 

The cause of CRPS isn’t clearly understood and awareness in the UK is low. This is why I’d like to raise money and awareness through running the Rock n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon. Whilst also completing a life long goal of my own. In 2019 I ran the Great North Run in a t-shirt that said “I run because Amy can’t”. Now I intend to run even further because Amy can do even less. 

Let's spread the awareness for CRPS! Thank you for your support!
