A photograph of Kim Wilde appeared on 24miles4mnd, a marathon photographic portrait initiated by Miles Pilling and Cristian Barnett. The aim is to raise awareness about the devastating but little understood disease Motor Neurone Disease, and to seek sponsorship for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. The project started on August 14, 2018 and culminated on September 9, when Cristian ran 26 miles in the Tallinn marathon in Estonia.
Ex-BBC cameraman Miles Pilling has Motor Neurone Disease (MND). He went into photography while his friend Hal Fowler - Kim's husband - decided to take to the stage. The 26Miles4MND photoshoot took place at Kim’s beautiful 16th century barn conversion in 2015. To see all the photographs in the project, go to the 26miles4mnd Instagram page and Facebook page.
