Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

Despite being a keen runner, it has taken years to convince myself to take on the challenge of running a marathon. Taking on such a personal challenge is a great opportunity to raise money for a good cause. I'm very honoured to be filling African Children's Fund's only place in the 2015 London Marathon. The work they do to promote education and allow children to be children in East Africa is inspiring. When you consider how much their projects achieve with relatively small amounts of money, I really feel that my marathon fundraising will be able to make a difference.

In the developed world, we take a lot for granted. I hope by achieving my personal goal of running a marathon, I can help many children to achieve something we all take for granted: to complete their education and build a decent life for themselves.

I know I love running but running a marathon is a whole different ball game and will push me beyond what I've done so far so please donate generously!
