My story

<p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Asthma affects over 5 million people in the UK; every day, three people die because of the condition. At present, there is no cure, but it can be controlled, and Asthma UK not only plays a part in researching treatments, but also educates those directly or indirectly affected.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>I was diagnosed with Exercise Induced Asthma at the age of 16 (just - it was the day before my 17th birthday), although the symptoms had been present for years beforehand.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>So why run a marathon if I have EIA? </strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>For a start, exercise helps to keep my lungs strong, and healthy, hopefully preventing major attacks in the future.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>On a personal level, I always wanted to be an athlete, but struggled to run distance as a child. Now that my asthma is under control, I can take on the challenge of 26.2 miles; this is my second attempt, so I have a personal best to achieve!</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Please sponsor me, and help Asthma UK to carry on the great job that they are doing to fight this debilitating condition.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</strong></span></p>
