My story

[p]UPDATE* unfortunately because of COVID-19 the marathon in April got postponed until September which has now also been cancelled. I will be reattempting to do the marathon next year in April! [/p][p]I am raising money to help build and equip a sustainable eye clinic in Bwindi, rural Uganda. [/p][p]This is a charity close to my heart as my mum who is an optometrist is a founder of this project and regularly visits to give support and training. There are no eye care services within 130 miles and the need for basic glasses and medical care is desperate.[/p][p]Having heard first hand, about some of the upsetting cases where children and adults were unable to receive basic treatment of eye injuries and often as a consequence lose their sight, I have decided to run the Brighton Marathon in order to raise money for this charity, alongside my friend Shaniya who is raising money for Alzheimer’s. [/p][p]The story that pushed me to do this marathon was hearing about the little girl whom had fallen and damaged her eye on a branch. Without an eye hospital available, and no medical care, she was left untreated for many months. Only when my Mum first went to Bwindi were they able to bring her in after months of pain to have her eye cleaned and treated and eventually sent for a further operation to remove her eye, when it became clear that the eye could not be saved. [/p][p]Hearing this awfully sad story from my Mum, made me desperately want to do something to help in anyway. I felt I could, at least, run 26 miles, to do something to help people like this little girl, despite the fact I can barely run 3! Please help me to support this very worthwhile cause with any donations possible, as all will make a direct change to someone's life.

Emily, I don't know you, but I do know your mum - she is my optometrist, and came to speak to my Rotary club recently. I think this is a fantastic charity and a worthy cause, I hope you raise lots of money. Keep up the training and go for it!
