My story

[p]To be clear, this is my first marathon, it just happens to be around the time of my 40th birthday! [/p][p]For years, I said I would run a marathon but always seemed to find a good reason not to, but an impending milestone birthday (and my children calling me old!) has proved good motivation so on October 3rd, I will be running the virtual London Marathon. I also thought it would be a good opportunity to raise some money for an excellent cause - The Somerville Foundation - who provide support for young people and adults born with congenital heart disease. My Mum is one of these people. She was born with heart problems, underwent surgery as a child and young adult and has continued to be supported by specialist cardiology services throughout her life. The Somerville Foundation provide many forms of support for people such as my Mum. They support the specialist clinics and provide training for staff, invest in research, offer people help, advice and a listening ear, offer grants and even help with practical things like specialist travel insurance, allowing people like Mum to travel abroad without breaking the bank. [/p][p]So, I'm running a marathon for my Mum because she has always said that she has never been any good at running. Thank you so much for your support which will enable other people born with heart problems to enjoy more opportunities in life.[/p]
