My story

[p]I have been lucky enough to have gained a place to run the 2019 London Marathon. This will be the first marathon I have run and a huge challenge in itself - but something I am thouroughly looking forward too [/p][p]I have chosen to use my ballot place to help raise money for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. SSAFA helped me after my Dad was killed in Iraq in 2005. They played a huge part in getting me access to support channels when I needed them most. I am ecstatic that I have this opportunity to give back and hopefully raise money that will allow SSAFA to help many people in the future the same way they helped me![/p][p]SSAFA has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. In 2017, their staff and team of volunteers helped over [b]73,200 people[/b], from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts. Their caseworkers completed [b]38,725 cases and visits[/b] in 2017 alone.[/p]
