My story

[p]On 3 November 2019 I will be taking on the very scary task of running the NYC Marathon in order to raise funds for the Mavis Nye Foundation (MNF) a cause close to my heart. [/p][p]MNF raises money to support much needed research into treatment for mesothelioma, a fatal cancer caused by asbestos exposure. I am hopeful that scientific research will one day lead to a cure. In addition, MNF raises awareness of mesothelioma and teaches us all how to protect ourselves from the dangers associated with asbestos dust exposure, as well as pressing for a change in UK policy towards asbestos management.[/p][p]Although I run a lot, the NYC marathon presents challenges all of its own - a very early morning start to get through security to the start line, with the potential for freezing New York winter weather on the day. As anyone who knows me will confirm, I absolutely HATE the cold and so I am quite nervous about the prospect of undertaking this challenge.[/p][p]It is for an incredible cause however, and so I - and the Foundation - really would be grateful for any change you can spare :-)[/p]
