My story

[p]Thanks you so much for visiting my page. I am running my first ever Marathon for Northern Lights and my aim is to raise £500 for this wonderful charity.[/p][p]I feel running this distance would be an amazing achievement for me but relish the opportunity to raise money for a local charity that I am passionate about. [/p][p]Northern Lights is a children’s charity based in Neston, formed to raise funds to give children with life-limiting illnesses the unique experience of a very special holiday they will never forget. [/p][p]Every December the charity take around 12 children, aged between 6 and 11, on the trip of a lifetime to Lapland.[/p][p]Dog sled rides, reindeers, snow-mobiles, deep crisp snow. Not to mention seeing the great Northern Lights or the excitement of visiting Santa at his home in a forest by a frozen lake. [/p][p]As a registered children’s nurse of 17 years and health visitor of 10 years I have cared for many children such as this and hope to do my part in helping these children have a trip of a lifetime. After taking Will, George and Ella last December to Lapland, I know just how magical it is. [/p][p]Please donate as little or as much as you can to support this charity... and also to motivate me on those long and lonely runs! I don't think I realised just how hard training to run a marathon would be... or how much it would take over my life (although on a positive it has kept me out of the shops!) [/p][p]While the training is tough it is such a fantastic opportunity to raise a lot of money for a great cause.[/p][p]Thank you I really appreciate your support 😊[/p]
