As someone who has had asthma all their life, I wanted to raise money for a cause that's very close to my heart. (And for something which, quite embarrassingly, stopped me completing the 800 metre race during a school sports day when I was 12. Things have improved substantially since then, hence the whole marathon thing).

Compared to a lot of other asthma sufferers I've been very lucky. But this is an often very frightening lung condition that affects an increasing number of people. Asthma UK does vital research and other work to help people better understand and cope with their asthma so it does not control their lives, or worse, kill them.

According to the charity's website a shocking 3 people die every day from asthma.  90% of these deaths are preventable.
Hopefully we can all raise a bit of money here to help Asthma UK ensure that more of these preventable, and what must be terrifying, deaths are indeed prevented.
Thank you,
Sophie
