My story

[p]Update: A BIG THANK YOU to ALL for your support for the Lewy Body Society. It was an unforgettable wild, wet & windy day. Due to flooding/high winds I had to re-route off Scarista beach. Beset by technical challenges, due to "lack of connectivity" in a remote area, both my phone batteries went flat. Strava app recorded 13.5miles then the phone switched off. The London Marathon app continued until 16.9 miles, it did keep stopping & starting with connectivity issues, so I've no idea of accuracy. At around 19.20pm, our village had a power failure while I was trying to recharge my phones. Darkness had fallen coupled with poor weather conditions & no means to charge my phones, brought my marathon journey to an end. Good news is the power came back on at 3.45am! Trying to make a difference brought me much joy, & I'll definitely be doing this again! Whatever the challenges, this showed me anything is possible. Hiking 16 miles on sand is equivalent to the marathon distance of 26.2miles apparently! [/p][p]Well done to all those taking part in the #LondonMarathon 😊🏃?♀?[/p][p]********[/p][p]Someone very dear to me has Lewy Body Dementia, which is the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer's, but less well known.[/p][p]I have a place in the Virtual London Marathon to raise much needed funds to support research/treatments of Lewy Body Dementia. I will be walking the equivalent distance of the marathon on Scarista beach on 3 October to raise funds for the Lewy Body Society.[/p][p]We desperately need more research to help understand this condition and to support the development of treatments to help people living with Lewy Body Dementia. [/p][p]If you can help me raise some funds, no matter how little, I will be very grateful for your support for this cause which is very close to my heart.[/p][p]The well known actor Robin Williams also had Lewy Body Dementia and the difficulties he faced in his life, which others are struggling with, are heartbreaking and deserve our support.[/p]
