My story

[p]The London marathon is one of the worlds iconic marathons (for those of us who are daft enough to do this sort of thing it is race that will feature on a 'bucket list'). The added incentive of running for a charity will make the occasion more memorable. [/p][p][br][/p][p]As a father of two little girls (4 and 2) I appreciate the importance of sport and activity in young peoples lives in developing friendship (and importantly having fun), but not all children will get the same opportunity. By supporting the Youth Sport Trust I hope that children from disadvantaged backgrounds may get the same opportunities as my daughters.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Ultimately opportunities and experiences in our younger lives influence our futures. In my day job as a vascular surgeon I deal with complications of cardiovascular disease (most frequently as a consequence of atherosclerosis and diabetes). However the most important thing that I do does not involve operative intervention, but rather the modification of cardiovascular risk. The time to make the the biggest gains with this are in childhood/adolescence with health promotion and activity, sport can be an important part of this. [/p]
