My story

[p]In August / September 2019 (depending on rowing commitments) I will be running across England on the Coast to Coast run, west coast to east coast, covering a total of 192 miles which will be split over 6 days to average 32 miles a day (7 marathons in 6 days). The run will pass through 3 National Parks - the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors National Parks.[/p][p]Last year in September I ran an ultra marathon from Oxford to Henley (51 miles) along the Thames Path and found it seriously tough, but I want to push myself even more. This Coast to Coast run will really push me physically and mentally. [/p][p]I will split the raised money evenly between 2 charities (50/50). The first charity I have chosen is Myasthenia Gravis, as my uncle has suffered from it for many years. Myasthenia Gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles, which are responsible for breathing and moving parts of the body, including the arms and legs (https://www.myaware.org).[/p][p]The second charity I have chosen is Help for Heros. I have also chosen this charity as it is a charity that my family have supported for years. I am also keen to support Help for Heros as I am hoping to join the Royal Marines in the future. Help for Heros is a charity that helps provide better facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty (https://www.helpforheroes.org.uk). [/p][p]Any donation great or small is of course highly appreciate and will motivate me for a strong performance over the week! Thanks.[/p][p]Henry Blois-Brooke[/p]
