My story

[p]In April 2019, I’m going to be running the London Marathon! That’s an absolutely incredible thought and I can’t wait to give it my best.[/p][p]I’ve only been running a short time. Having lost 3 stone over the past year or so, it’s given me a new, rosier, outlook on life and in October 2017 I took my first running steps. Shortly followed by a Parkrun, a 10k and then in May this year, just after my 40th Birthday, I ran the Hackney Half Marathon.[/p][p]The Half Marathon was hard! I was utterly broken at the end but my overriding memory of the whole day was the crowd and the support from complete strangers.[/p][p]Running the Marathon is going to push me to my absolute limit.[/p][p]I’m going to be running in aid of [b]Children with Cancer UK[/b] and, with your help, it’s going to make every single training mile worth it. This amazing charity helps fund research and raises awareness of childhood cancer as well as supporting families who have been affected by this cruel and indiscriminate disease.[/p][p]Fifty years ago, only 25% of children diagnosed with Cancer survived. Today, 80% diagnosed with Cancer can be successfully treated for their condition. However, more needs to be done to increase these odds further and to help develop kinder and safer treatments with less toxic side effects. This is especially important for treating children, whose bodies aren’t as strong and resilient as an adults.[/p][p]Running has given me so much over these past 6 months and I would like to give back. But I need your help to do it. Any donation, big or small, is appreciated; will keep me on the straight and narrow through training; and will end up going towards such a good cause.[/p][p]Thanks for taking your time reading this and thanks in advance for any donation you can give.[/p][p]Cheesy xx[/p]
