My story

[p](S*** I didn't think it'd be yes!)[/p][p]On 10th March I will be running (on behalf of Magpie Dance Charity) the half marathon! Those of you that know me well, know how much of a challenge this is going to be in a variety of forms. However partaking in this unfavorable sport is to raise money to support the encouragement & opportunities offered from the Magpie Dance charity 💖[/p][p]Magpie Dance is a charity that is particularly close to my heart because of what it stands for - striving to build confidence and highlight talents in those with learning disabilities. They are the UK's leading dance charity for people with severe disabilities and provide interactive lessons for people ages 4 and upwards. The impact that inclusive dance lessons can have on anyone is incredible. It increases confidence, general well being (mentally & physically), and creates solid friendships.[/p][p]A very close friend of mine works for this company, and it reminds me of just how much support and passion is contributed into giving the best possible tuition experience for those with slightly more limited opportunities. BUT as this is a small Charity, based on ever growing friendships and solid trust, they can't do it without generous donations to fund the tuition - so please give what you can.[/p][p][url=https://www.magpiedance.org.uk/]https://www.magpiedance.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]Ironically this run will also mark around a year that someone close passed away, who suffered with severe autism, but found therapy in music & dance - so this will be a real honor to celebrate their memory.[/p][p]Thank you in advance for your support![/p][p]Kaz xx [/p]
