My story

[p]Hi everyone[/p][p][br][/p][p]After the past few weeks. I have come to realise I'm worth so much more then what I thought I was. Confidence has grown immensely and my health has improved dramatically.[/p][p]So myself and my great friend Dean want to make a difference.[/p][p]Having lost a close family member 6 years ago to the after effects of mental health from NF i have decided to do this.[/p][p]Dean is also raising money, but he is raising for the NHS after the strain it has been put under recently.[/p][p]So after careful planning and several discussions the 2 off us[/p][p]Both wheelchair users have decided we are going to wheel from[/p][p][br][/p][p]Ryhl in Wales[/p][p]To[/p][p]Kings Langley Hertfordshire[/p][p][br][/p][p]This is 189 miles in our chairs! [/p][p]Hand propelled, no motors, no engines, no being pushed, but by sheer determination, will power and upper body strength.[/p][p]We have arranged to do this over a 7 day period so we can rest at night.[/p][p][br][/p][p]We have organised via hotels who have offered us free accommodation per night while we attempt this.[/p][p]We have also approached radio station and local papers to help promote this.[/p][p][br][/p][p]This will be our charity run and all the money raised via Virgin Fund raising will go straight to the Lee Spark Foundation.[/p][p]If it wasnt for certain people in my life and there continued support over past few weeks I would never have had the confidence to even consider this.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Our attempt to achieve this humongous feat will be in 4 weeks time.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Hopefully we can raise enough to make a difference to many lives that have been affected by NF.[/p][p][br][/p][p]❤❤[/p]
