My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p]I'm running the 2018 London Marathon for Spinal Research UK. I'm honoured that the charity has accepted me to do this for them.[/p][p]Spinal research is the UK's leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.[/p][p]The facts are that 3 people every day will be told they will not walk again, more than 50,000 people who live in the UK and Ireland are paralysed due to spinal cord injury, every year 1,000 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed due to an injury to their spinal cord.[/p][p]I can not imagine what it would be like to become paralysed especially being such an active person at both work and in my spare time. Anyone who has had the misfortune to have any sort of spinal injury is well aware of how critical a healthy spinal cord is for functioning in everyday life. It is extremely important that this charity exists. The more funding they receive the more research can be done in finding effective treatments for people who are living with spinal cord injury.[/p][p]On a very personal note I was lucky enough to run the New York marathon in 2016. Whilst I was waiting to run I met a lovely man and we got chatting, we kept in contact, unfortunately this year he was involved in a work accident and is now paralysed. In a split second his life has been irreversibly changed and it is unlikely he will ever walk again. The research that is being done now is trying to help people like this walk again and at the very least help them to become independent and cope with their new situation.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for reading this and for any donation you can give xxx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
