My story

[p]Hello Everyone [/p][p]Its not very often you get to run a marathon. I ran in NY in 2016 for the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I ran the last 5 miles with Bryn Hughes and we talked a lot about Nicola and how her death has deeply affected him. Being part of the police family is a tremendous honour , so losing one of our own hits home deeper than anything. Many a time not knowing what dangers we face. Loss of a child is heartbreaking and for Bryn I commend him for creating the charity in Nicola’s name so she will never be forgotten. The charity is to raise money for children who have lost or witnessed homicide. Often of their own family members through domestic violence. The trauma they go through is only the start and if we can help in any way to make a difference . Then today be that day!![/p][p]Young Lives are important and if I can help in any way, I will. Therefore I am returning to NY with Bryn Hughes and 60 other police officers to run the NY Marathon. It is just a few of us trying to make a difference in a children’s lives. [/p][p]Thank you for you donations. Every penny helps. [/p][p]Govinda French [/p]
