My story

[p]I have signed up to the Manchester Marathon on October 11th to raise funds for the Ruth Strauss Foundation. Ruth died in 2018, one year after being diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer, which is primarily contracted by young women who have never smoked. As a result, many lung cancer patients have dependant kids. Andrew Strauss is the surviving parent with two sons aged 11 and 13. [/p][p]Their story resonated with me because my mum was a single parent and so I understand the challenges faced in these circumstances. Andrew also has the added element of his own grief of losing his wife, as well as providing support and guidance for his two boys through the traumatic loss of their mother.[/p][p]The Foundation will provide grants for life changing research into rare lung cancers and give professional support to families facing a terminal diagnosis or death of a loved one.[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src=""][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for any donations and I am extremely grateful for your support. Those making a donation will be offered a free personal training session by myself. Please remember to tick the gift aid box and leave your name.[/p][p]P.S. There will be a Fitness Fundraiser at Philips High School on Saturday 29th February from 4pm to 6pm. This will include fitness testing, zumba, yoga and nutrition advice for weight loss. Entry is free, but donations will be gratefully received.To book your place please contact Marco on 07812457153 or[/p]
