My story

[p]Hi All[/p][p]Thank you for visiting my page. "When You Wish Upon A Star" is a charity very close to my heart. They have looked after my son Harvey who has 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (DiGeorge) by sending him to Lapland when he was younger, whilst recovering from major surgery to correct his curved spine. I have included a picture of Harvey who earlier this year stood in front of 200+ people to deliver the most compelling speech about what his "wish" meant to him.[/p][p]My challenge is to raise at least £1000 by running the London Marathon in April 2019....usual challenge? I cannot run and haven't done so since being at school (ok a long time ago!). I'm 45, asthmatic and have flat feet. Is that enough to make you feel generous enough to help me raise money for this wonderful charity? I really hope so and am going to give it all my commitment and train very hard.[/p][p]They support children with terminal and life long effecting illnesses. I really want to raise enough money to help grant wishes to children to fulfil a wish of their lifetime. The feeling as a parent seeing your ill child forget it for just one day is inspiring and truly priceless. Please give what you can and I shall leave you with my new mantra......I CAN DO THIS![/p][p]Thank you for your generosity. Its mean's a lot.[/p][p]Claire x[/p][p][br][/p]
