My story

[p]2019 will be the year I hopefully complete my 100th marathon. I have finished 85 at the moment so it’ll be a big challenge that will keep my pretty busy all year! I thought it would be a great opportunity to raise some much needed funds for a great cause too. I lead a very active life and sometimes take being fit and healthy for granted, but many young people struggle to find the opportunities to take part in sport. That is why this year I’ll be raising money for Get Kids Going! [/p][p]Get Kids Going! is a national charity which gives disabled children and young people the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport. They provide specially built sports' wheelchairs so people can do: athletics, marathons, tennis, skiing, rugby, sailing, boccia, basketball, sledge hockey, table tennis, fencing, shooting, archery, powerlifting and many more sports. Get Kids Going! inspires British disabled youngsters to compete in sporting events, from start to Paralympic level, by also giving them sports grants to help with their; training, physiotherapy, travel, competition fees, design and development of sports' equipment etc. With your help many can become world record holders and Paralympic champions![/p]
