My story

[p]When I started running in November 2016, taking part in a marathon was something I thought I would never be capable of. [/p][p]Having lost my father and several close friends (one of which was only in his mid fifties and also a runner) in 2018, my outlook on life changed. I decided that I would make the most of every opportunity offered to me.[/p][p]My employer, Rooster Sailing, already supports the 1851 Trust and when the Trust offered us London Marathon places, it was a 'no brainer'.[/p][p][url=https://www.1851trust.org.uk/][img]https://www.1851trust.org.uk/wp-content/themes/1851trust/images/NEW1851.gif[/img][/url][/p][p]The 1851 Trust is a dynamic and innovative education charity committed to inspiring young people to become innovators of the future. [/p][p]Inspired by Sir Ben Ainslie’s challenge for sailing’s America’s Cup and using materials from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, young people have a unique opportunity to take part in a range of hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities. [/p][p]As well as these fun, educational activities, the young people all love the opportunity to put their learning into practice sailing dinghies. For most, this is their first experience out on the water![/p][p][br][/p][p]I am organising a quiz evening to raise funds towards my target but any donations through VirginMoneyGiving would also be very much appreciated. Thank you.[/p]
