My story

[p]PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO, IT'S SHORT BUT WILL ADD PERSPECTIVE TO YOUR DAY - [url=https://youtu.be/nbg6IJqFO8I]https://youtu.be/nbg6IJqFO8I[/url] [/p][p]----------------------------------------------------------[/p][p][b]Thursday 10th January - [u]5k - AVAILABLE[/u][/b][/p][p][b]Friday 11th January - [u]10k - SHIRT SPONSOR SOLD[/u][/b][/p][p][b]Saturday 12th January - [u]Half marathon - SHIRT SPONSOR SOLD[/u][/b][/p][p][b]Sunday 13th January - [u]Full marathon - SHIRT SPONSOR SOLD[/u][/b][/p][p][b]-------------------------------------------------------------[/b][/p][p]That's the challenge I've set myself to raise money for a Leicester charity which means the world to me. [/p][p]Bodie was just 10 months old when he was taken from this world; he left behind a devastated mother, father and sister - [url=http://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/about-us/]http://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/about-us/[/url] but the work the family have done to keep Bodie's name in such positive spirit inspires me. They're incredible human beings and people I would do anything to help. [/p][p]Bodie's legacy lives on as he donated organs to help 4 children with their lives. Bodie is a hero. [/p][p]I have become very close to Nick and Donna Hodges who, through their charity and hard graft in raising funds, have purchased Bodie's Boathouse which is a 3 bedroom lakeside retreat for families who have just sadly lost a child. [/p][p]The charity raise funds to maintain the house and help families deal with their grief as well as projects such as Bodie's Treasured Memory Bags which provide grief resources to help all of the family, including younger siblings - [url=http://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/bodies-treasured-memory-bags/]http://www.bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk/bodies-treasured-memory-bags/[/url][/p][p]I will sell the [b]four[/b] running shirts to commercial sponsors I hope (contact me if you'd like to get involved as a business) but greatly accepting individual donations too. [/p][p]£60 helps the charity provide a Treasured Memory Bag which helps siblings remember their lost one; every five pounds or tenner will help towards that. [/p][p]Please donate if you can, I'm doing my best to train hard, lose weight and keep myself injury free so I can get this tough challenge completed. [/p][p]God Bless you Bodie. [/p][p][br][/p]
