My story

[p]Hi guys,[/p][p]My name is Gillian O'Riordan and I am running the London Marathon to raise money for Bromley-by-Bow Centre in East London. Anyone who knows me probably knows the London Marathon has been in my sights for the last few years and I cannot believe it is finally happening! I am so excited/anxious and nervous to take on the challenge and I need YOUR help to get me there! If you can sponsor me by sending money, AMAZING, or if you want to join me for a run please let me know, but either way you will be helping me achieve a huge goal of mine as well as supporting an extremely worthy charity.[/p][p]This charity does some amazing work and I am so proud to be representing them and raising money for such a worthy cause. The centre works with children, adults and families with all types of needs and understands that health comes in a huge variety of ways. They acknowledge that our health is mostly driven by social factors. It provides a GP service, therapy, courses and classes from learning a new skill to exercise classes. It helps to pick people up from their lowest and is a place to socialise, make friends and laugh. The key to a happy life. [/p][p]As a primary school teacher working in an inner city London school much of my daily job involves caring for children’s social and emotional needs, and for many academic achievement comes second. Simply getting into school is a success and sadly for some, the classroom is a safe heaven for them. Having the opportunity to see the struggle some families go through this centre is clearly vital to the community. The people that Bromley-by-Bow work with are sometimes on the margins of society and need these supports. We are rooting for their success.

[/p][p][br][/p][p]Until then, SEE YOU AT THE FINISH LINE![/p]
