My story

[p]Hi Everyone![/p][p][br][/p][p]So im taking on my first ever Marathon! What better way to do it than raising money for charity! I have never been a skinny lad, but after my dad died in 2009 my weight really piled on, I started my weight loss journey in 2014 with cycling but over the last couple of years running has taken over and I now love it. I now dedicate a lot of time every year to raise money for charity, it helps me to remain focused on keeping the weight off or down and also helps me focus on making my dad proud. To date I have lost over 7 stone and raised over £4000![/p][p]Kidney Research UK is a charity close to my heart and i have raised money for these in previous years with other events due to my Dad having a kidney transplant many years ago and more recently, after one of my brothers became quite ill, finding out his kidneys had failed, the rest of my brothers (i have 5 in total) to be tested for the disease, unfortunately the tests came back to show that 3 of us suffer from kidney disease, and 3 of us are clear, fortunately i am one of the lucky ones. My younger brother Kyle, who's kidneys failed in 2010 is still receiving dialysis 3 days a week and has struggled to get on the transplant list. Fingers crossed this year is his year![/p][p]The company I work for, AJW Distribution LTD have also decided to make Kidney Research UK their chosen charity of the year for 2020 which will hopefully mean a nice amount being raised through various events![/p][p][br][/p][p]I have never ran more than 13.1 miles so please support me by supporting this charity![/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you :)[/p][p][br][/p][p]Lots of love[/p][p][br][/p][p]Dean x[/p]
