My story

[p]Fourth try lucky and the dream is being made real. From the moment I began running, the dream was always the London Marathon. My Dad has completed it and in the year of hot hell, my boy Josh, also completed it. [/p][p]Let me give you a brief background of me. I began running with one of my besties to get fit, which turned into 5ks, 10ks and half marathons. I vowed my first marathon would be London.. so here we are! [/p][p]For me, without running the world would be a darker place. Running gives me the headspace/release needed for living in a world which can be full of testing times. There’s nothing better than popping in the AirPods to listen to my playlist and running wherever my legs may take me. Whether it be short or long, each run takes me away. [/p][p]The main aim is not only to complete the marathon but also to raise lots of pennies for two extremely important charities.[/p][p][br][/p][p]First Charity: [u]The Adam Appeal [/u][/p][p]The Adam Appeal is a not-for-profit charity which aims to raise funds to provide cardiac defibrillators to schools, colleges, sports halls and community venues and raise awareness of cardiac risk to young people in the North West of England. They campaign on issues about cardiac screening in young people and also provide cardiac screening to hundreds of young people in the local area.[/p][p]The Adam Appeal is important to me as I have, in lots of ways, supported this charity since I began working for E Collinson & Co Ltd. My work colleague, Paul, is the reason we support this charity. He’s a pretty nice guy to me too. Josh also raised money for CRY when he ran the Marathon. [/p][p]Please check out [url=https://www.theadamappeal.co.uk/]https://www.theadamappeal.co.uk[/url] to see the most incredible work this charity does. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Second Charity: [u]Baby Beat[/u][/p][p]Baby Beat supports babies and mothers being cared for in the maternity units at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.[/p][p]They fund specialist equipment, patient services, clinical care and research to ensure the best possible outcomes for babies and mothers.[/p][p]As many of you know, Reggie, my smallest nephew, made an explosive entrance in to the world. My sister, Penny, suffered a ruptured uterus and Reggie needed neo-natal intensive care. The support and work conducted by the maternity ward to make Reggie and Penny comfortable went above and beyond. Without the expertise of these nurses, the story could have been so different.[/p][p]Please check out [url=https://babybeat.org.uk/]https://babybeat.org.uk[/url] [/p][p]So there you go.. your support would be much appreciated. I just hope I can do you all proud 💜 [/p]
