My story

[p]Having run my 7th half marathon earlier this year, I’ve decided it’s time to take the plunge and double the distance in 2019.[/p][p]Yes...you heard me correctly. I am taking on my biggest challenge yet: 26.2 miles of the historical London Marathon! [/p][p]Other than it being a lifelong personal challenge of mine, my main motivation for entering this event is to raise money for the incredible charity Afasic, who promotes understanding, acceptance, equal opportunities and the inclusion into society of children and young adults with speech and language impairments. Afasic seeks to raise awareness and to create better services and provision for children and young people with speech and language impairments. Please see their website for more information:[/p][p][url=https://www.afasic.org.uk/]https://www.afasic.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]As you may know, I’ve spent the last eight years working for an incredible school for children whose primary need is speech, language and communication difficulties. So to run for a charity so closely linked to a job and provision I am so passionate about is a real honour. [/p][p]I would be hugely greatful for any donations...big or small...towards helping me hit my target of £2500. Every penny will go directly to Afasic and I know they will be as appreciative as me. Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance! [/p]
