My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page!

I will be running the 2017 London Marathon to raise funds for an amazing charity called Children with Cancer UK.

If you havent heard of Children with Cancer UK, they help fund vital research into finding a cure for all childhood cancers, and provide vital support for children and their families who are going through treatment. 

I have never run a marathon before so this is going to be a huge task for me to undertake, but just knowing that all the pain, sweat and tears I will go through running those 26.2 miles has helped just one child will be so worth it!

Heres an idea of what just a little bit of money can help do:

£10 - Could fund the analysis of one tissue sample, to help researchers understand the genetics of heart failure after treatment for childhood cancer.

£25 - Could help fund essential blood tests to monitor the effectiveness of therapy in a ground breaking immunotherapy trial for children with relapsed leukaemia. 

Any amount you can sponsor me, big or small, will be so appreciated and will help keep me motivated through the months of winter training, and the race itself on 23/04/2017!

Thanks so much!
