My story

[p]12 years ago my dad suffered heart failure. I still remember visiting him and being shocked at how grey and lacking in life he looked (sorry dad). I think we all honestly thought that he might not have long left on this earth. Amazingly thanks to the fantastic work of Leicester Hospitals and research and funding from the BHF, dad is with us 12 years later! 12 years have given him the chance to see my son, Archie grow up. 12 years have given him the chance to see Leicester win the league (although granted he was less bothered than me as he is a Chelsea fan), and 12 more years that my mum has had to put up with him🤣. I wanted to do something to say thank you to Leicester Hospitals, and all their amazing staff and the BHF for all the brilliant work they do. So 12 marathons around Leicester and Leicestershire in 12 weeks. It's going to be the biggest challenge I have ever undertaking, so I need all the support and donations I can get to make this happen.[/p][p][br][/p]
