My story

[p]Thank you in advance all you wonderful people for reading about and supporting me in completing my first ever "virtual" fundraising marathon (walk) on 3rd October. 😜😁 The "virtual" bit means I will be attending an online version, completing it anywhere outside (but is completed 'alongside' the real London Marathon).[/p][p][br][/p][p]I am dedicating this marathon to my brother, Paul Moore, whom we lost last year, due to a sudden unexpected illness. The photo here is of Paul doing his favourite thing, cycling in the North Yorkshire Moors. Or as he would say having a "brilliant and fantastic" time! [/p][p][br][/p][p]I am fundraising for two of the causes closest to my heart. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]British Tinnitus Association[/u][/b][/p][p]In 2017, tinnitus hit me out of the blue. It devastated me emotionally and physically for a long time and affected my work and personal life a great deal. I had no idea how debilitating the effects could be (and continue to be for many people). I cope much better these days and in fact now volunteer for the British Tinnitus Association to help others through tough times. I want to raise funds to support the BTA in their crucial work because tinnitus is a pretty common condition affecting around 1 in 8 of us, but gets little attention and no direct government funding.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]NHS - York Hospital ICU [/u][/b][/p][p]I want to raise funds to thank the NHS, specifically [i]York Hospital ICU[/i], where my brother sadly passed away after suddenly becoming seriously ill. The ICU at NHS York hospital looked after Paul with the utmost care and compassion during a very difficult time for the NHS whilst simultaneously dealing with Covid19 and other serious conditions. They looked after our family with great sensitivity and respect during the 4 weeks that Paul struggled to hold onto his life. Our whole family thanks them from all our hearts.
