My story

[p]On the 28th April 2019, I will be running the London Marathon on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust.[/p][p]Marathon running is notoriously hard and tough on the body but is an absolute walk in the park compared to what young people with cancer and their families face day in, day out. [/p][p]Cancer in young people isn't even that rare, 7 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer every single day. Every one of those young people go on to face it in their own way, and the Teenage Cancer Trust are there to support them through this nightmare of a reality.[/p][p]TCT offer incredible support and opportunities for young folk and that's why I want you to be as generous as you can be and surprise yourself with your own generosity in sponsoring me to take on this challenge on behalf of the absolute heroes at the Teenage Cancer Trust. [/p][p]You'll see from the photos on this page that I have done a few runs already to test the legs, running the Carlisle and Stirling 10k's and the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon. The 10k's were fairly fine, the half marathon on the other hand was brutal and it broke my foot and claimed a few toe nails. So every pound you donate will spur me on to train harder, run faster, care less about minor injuries & leg pain and focus what’s important. [/p][p]Let’s be the difference for those who need it.[/p][p]All support is greatly appreciated.[/p][p]“No man is a failure who has friends”[/p]
