My story

[p]Hi! [/p][p]This year I have been given the rare opportunity to run the Virgin London Marathon through my amazing running group - Tewkesbury Allrunners. [/p][p]Running a whole marathon is a huge achievement in itself, it takes a lot of self believe. To keep myself motivated throughout, not just on the race day but all the weeks of training, I have chosen two Charities close to my heart to raise money for. [/p][p]I have chosen the Nspku and Campbell Burns Metabolic Trust. My son Kenny was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disease called Phenylketonuria at birth which means a lifelong low protein restricted diet and yucky supplements. ( I wish I could swap with him to take the burden of him - I feel so guilty :( )[/p][p]The two charities do endless work for people like Kenny & family. They are only very small but are already so important to the Pku world. [/p][p]Every single penny will be greatly appreciated by them so they can continue their amazing work!!![/p][p][br][/p]
