My story

[p][b][u]MY STORY[/u][/b][/p][p]Hi everyone, As you know, I’ve done lots of races over the last few years and pushed myself to the max in all conditions. [/p][p]Now I want to put all of my racing and endurance experience together and make it count, which is why I’ve signed up with ‘Children with Cancer UK’. This charity is particularly poignant for me as both my parents have been diagnosed with cancer in the last 18 months, and I have two young kids and just cannot imagine what it would be like for them to go through what my parents have.[/p][p]So with your help, we can all make a difference to this charity and the lives of kids with cancer.[/p][p]I’m already lined up to do various races including OCR’s, Marathons, ultramarathons, 3 multi day races including the Marathon des Sables regarded as the toughest race on earth (a six-day, 251 km race in the Sahara Desert). And if I survive that, I’ve now got the London Marathon a couple of weeks after![/p][p]Please help support me in these and all the other races I do all for this excellent cause. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]Children with Cancer UK[/u][/b][/p][p]Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
