My story

[p]In October 2021, I will be running my 5th London Marathon. Like everyone else, I sincerely hope that this will be through the glorious streets of London![/p][p]I will be running for the amazing St George’s Hospital charity, for a special niche project. In April 2018, Phoebe (my wife) and I tragically lost our first daughter. Ottilie Barrett was stillborn at 37 weeks, a devastating loss. After the event, we learnt that this is all too common, 1:200.[/p][p]During that sad time, St George’s looked after us in The Forget Me Not Suite, a private space where parents can mourn and spend precious, final moments with their children. [/p][p]We have been fundraising for some time now and have raised a significant sum of circa £40,000 - a figure which has been added to by the charity to the tune of £20,000, all to refurbish and remodel the Forget Me Not Suite. BUT, we are not done and would love to add to this total![/p][p]Phoebe has walked a coastal marathon, I have run a marathon and an ultra marathon and this is part of my long term commitment to pay back to the charity. Other friends have also undertaken significant challenges, including a few in this marathon.[/p][p]2021 will also be a PB attempt! Riddled with injury in 2019 I ran my worst time ever. My current best is 3:41, set in 2010. I am confident that the lockdown miles will enable my to achieve a PB. I would love to smash it![/p][p]Your support, new and ongoing is hugely appreciated! Thanks very much. The room really will make a huge difference to those in their time of need. T H A N K Y O U.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
