My story

[p]I'm running the London Marathon in memory of my dear colleague Shawn Russell who passed away in June 2017 after a short battle with leukaemia. You can read more about Shawn by clicking the hotlink in the banner at the top of this page.[/p][p]So, how to channel the grief, anger and overbearing sense of frustration into something positive? Hopefully by raising a huge amount of cash for Leukaemia Care; money that will help a family in desperate need when a loved one is diagnosed with this awfully cruel illness.[/p][p]I understand that times are tough for many people at the moment, but any donation of any size will be gratefully received. The Telegraph have been incredibly generous and have added a £2000 donation to my fundraising.[/p][p]Every single footstep of my training for the 2018 London Marathon, and the race itself, is run in Shawn's memory.[/p]
