My story

[p]So it has always been something that I have wanted to do but after a number of failed attempts it has finally been confirmed that I will be running the London Marathon in 17 weeks. I have started my training and am slowly increasing my distance but to get to that 26.4 miles I think I will need some donations to keep that motivation going.[/p][p]I am raising money for Valence School. Valence School is a Special needs school that works with students who have complex disabilities. After working in the school for the past year I have learnt a lot of different skills about disabilities and what these children have been through and are going through. When thinking whether I wanted to do the run or not, I thought about how the students I teach push themselves till they succeed. This is the motivation that I am going to take throughout my training and then through the run itself. The money that I raise will go towards the school itself, be it with improving some of the care suits, to creating a place where the students can meet on a summers evening to relax and chat to their friends. Every penny that I get from 1p to £20 will go to the students to improve THEIR school and improving THEIR school experience. I'm also doing this to bring the whole school together, as a teacher of the school I'm hoping that everyone involved in the school from teachers, staff, students and even parents, someone who is involved in the day to day running of the school we can work together to get me through this task and help reform this school that is so special to the students.[/p][p]As it says above I am looking to get £2640 to start with and any more would be even better. I am looking to get £100 for each mile, which yes is a lot but for the charity that I am running for I think this money can go a long way to improving the students educational experience. [/p]
