Royal Parks 1/2 Marathon

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

This year I have decided to run the Royal Parks 1/2 Marathon and to raise money for 'First Touch' (Target £1000). It would be great to get your support and if you can make it down on the day it would be fantastic to see you. 

SAVE THE DATE: Sunday 9th October

So why 'First Touch'? Well my youngest brother (Lyon) was born 9 weeks premature and it was touch and go whether he would make it or not. Thankfully he pulled through, but this was purely down to the excellent level of specialist treatment he received at the time. Lyon was born in Houston, Texas and without the help of their specialist unit out there he would not have survived. He has now blossomed into a healthy, active 6 year old who enjoys life to the max. 

Here in the UK the neonatal unit at St Georges Hospital, London does an equally fantastic job of looking after premature babies and 'First Touch' aims to help the babies and their families to a brighter future by funding vital pieces of equipment, staff development and family welfare.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Don't forget to come down and cheer me on if your in London on Sunday 9th October. I look forward to seeing you then.

Thank You.
