Starlight
Starlight grants magical wishes to seriously and terminally ill children who are afraid and in pain, and is the only charity providing entertainment, fun and laughter to half a million children in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK.
ACROSS
ACROSS provides holidays and pilgrimages across Europe but specifically to the Christian Shrine of Lourdes in South West France. Transport is provided by unique vehicles referred to as a jumbulance and care is provided by volunteer medical staff and helpers. Priority is given to those in terminal illness or those whose condition is such that they cannot travel by conventional means of transport.

• 1 OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE •

In 2017 I will be celebrating my 10th year with ACROSS and what a better way of celebrating that then organising and participating in a 300 miles ultra duathlon, I will also be raising money for the Starlight Children's Foundation.

I will run 150 miles from Richmond along the Thames Path, cycle 149 Miles from Henley-on-Thames to Gravesend and then onto The Mall whilst making a quick pit stop at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for a photo, and then to top it all off run "The most famous mile in the world" to complete the most gruelling challenge of my life and conquer #300MilesToGo.

In August 2016, I cycled 1000 miles from Land’s end to John O’Groats over 12 days, it was by far the biggest challenge I had ever set myself but this year I am going even bigger and the rewards will outweigh the pain along the way.

Over the past 5 years I have completed 8 marathons raising money for my chosen charities but this year I want to go one better and raise even more money and even more awareness.

After I completed the London Marathon someone said to me “It’s complete, you’ve done it all there’s no more to do”. I felt sad and said “No” and that’s how I ended up with an epic journey ahead of me.

ACROSS

ACROSS is a charity which is very close to my heart, they provide a 10 day pilgrimage to Lourdes for the sick and disabled.

Since 2007 I have been going to Lourdes in France with the Heston and Isleworth ACROSS group as a carer.
Each pilgrimage costs £700 and everyone pays even the helpers but without them we can't take the sick and disabled to Lourdes and give them a fantastic experience.


Half the money raised will go towards the Heston and Isleworth ACROSS group so they will be able to travel to Lourdes as a group and this will also make it possible for others to travel who would otherwise miss out on a life changing experience.

Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children by wish granting and also by providing fun, entertainment, laughter and distraction for children in every children’s hospital ward and hospice throughout the United Kingdom. All Starlight’s activities are aimed at distracting children from the pain, fear and isolation they can often feel as a result of their illnesses.

A few weeks ago I got a letter in the post from Starlight telling of a child's story and it stuck with me for a few days and I knew I had to do something to help so that's how they became a part of #300MilesToGo.


"Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Ladies and Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse".
