My story

[p]I will be raising money for the St. James's Place Charitable Foundation in aid of Vital Signs Foundation.[/p][p]Earlier this year I took Alfie for Heart Screening at Christleton High School, it was a free service provided by Vital Signs Foundation, who screen youngsters from 16 to 35 years old, Alfie screening was absolutely fine, thankfully!![/p][p]However, whilst we were there, we heard the news that earlier in the day they had in fact come across somebody with a very serious condition. It just shows how life can change in the blink of an eye, if they had not attended the screening who knows what the outcome would have been. [/p][p]Vital Signs Foundation rely purely on fundraising to enable to provide these screening sessions, at a cost of £3,000 per day. Please sponsor me if you can, as a bonus St. James's Place have agreed to match any donations made by a further 50% - which is amazing!![/p][p]My challenge is to run 17.1 miles of the Sandstone Trail in Chester, yes I am a runner and have done a number of road runs, however.....I do not like hills or off road running......so please wish me luck, thank you xxx [/p][p] [url=https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.vsf.org.uk_v2_wp-2Dcontent_uploads_2016_08_About-2Dus-2Dincluding-2Drecent-2Dstats-2D3.pdf&d=DwMFaQ&c=6zrz5v1771esYjKEWYkRSg&r=6Cpy2FAsy5QZ_uLgzNtAmghQRz-F9xsyJHiiyqDfdJg&m=qPVwdtSxTzftm3Zhm8FZfgFCeM1VilSNS7prEQWDe_s&s=4P-YW7bzFmTcvL7BCo90vF63GNAQvUpOscqDbI7QFYU&e=]http://www.vsf.org.uk/v2/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/About-us-including-recent-stats-3.pdf [vsf.org.uk][/url][/p][p][url=https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.vsf.org.uk_v2_wp-2Dcontent_uploads_2016_08_Postcard-2DChris-2DHaw-2DStory-2Dred.pdf&d=DwMFaQ&c=6zrz5v1771esYjKEWYkRSg&r=6Cpy2FAsy5QZ_uLgzNtAmghQRz-F9xsyJHiiyqDfdJg&m=qPVwdtSxTzftm3Zhm8FZfgFCeM1VilSNS7prEQWDe_s&s=inmkSyKWlv8g-L2o5_xUxJU7HcZ7f3HjvTPVnrocCos&e=]http://www.vsf.org.uk/v2/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Postcard-Chris-Haw-Story-red.pdf [vsf.org.uk][/url][/p]

Wow, well done Claire!!! An awesome challenge for an extremely important cause. I've heard of a few young people who've had heart conditions identified and successfully treated due to them attending screening sessions like these. We need more of them!!
