My story

[p]I will be running the London Marathon 2019 in support of Guide Dogs. I began running in June this year and completed my first Half Marathon in September. Now I'm taking on the London Marathon to raise money for a great cause and also see what I’m really made of![/p][p]Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind. Guide Dogs are there to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well. It surprised me to find that each guide dog costs approximately £56,800 to train from birth through to their retirement. I'm aiming to raise £2,000 to contribute towards this great charity. [/p][p]Any donations would be greatly appreciated, and every penny raised will go towards helping provide life changing services for people suffering from blindness. [/p][p]Thank you all for your support![/p]

Congratulations and well done (and apologies for late donation). The thought of two half marathons back to back - you have my admiration. And for a great cause - there is a lady that lives near me that trains dogs to be guide dogs.
