My story

[p]For my 40th year, I really wanted to do something a little bit challenging, and thought it would be great 'fun' to complete 40 running/multi events before I hit 41 - and a great opportunity to raise some money for charity at the same time. Having said I'd never run more than a 10k, I completed the 2019 Cambridge Half Marathon in just over 2.5hrs. I am running on behalf of the Norrie Disease Foundation, a charity that I am a trustee of. [/p][p]Norrie Disease is an incurable, ultra rare genetic condition affecting mainly boys, causing them to be born blind or with severe visual impairment. Most also develop progressive hearing loss around adolescence. Other secondary symptoms include cognitive impairment, autism and delayed development. [/p][p]The Norrie Disease Foundation (NDF) is a partner with the Sparks and Great Ormond St Hospital Children’s Charity national funding call to improve the treatment or quality of life of patients with Norrie disease, particularly focusing on the Norrie disease progressive hearing loss. NDF needs to fundraise £50,000 to enable this research to take place - all sponsorship will go towards this fundraising campaign.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Norrie Disease Foundation. 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][p]My challenge starts on 23 September 2018, finishing 22 September 2019!
