My story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.[/p][p]For those that know me and my aversion to exercise you will know what a challenge this will be for me but might as well jump in at the deep end as they say 😁[/p][p]For those that don't know, I lost my mum to cancer last year and my brother, who is only 4 year older than me, took a major heart attack 6 weeks later. [/p][p]As a result I decided to get fit and needing something to aim for decided in my wisdom to enter the NY marathon. [/p][p]Cancer and heart disease has affected my immediate and extended family not only last year but over the course of the past 27 years so it seemed fitting to try and raise some money for two charities close to my heart.[/p][p]I'm sure everyone is aware of the great work both Macmillan Cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation do but more information can be found here[/p][p]www.macmillan.org.uk/about-us[/p][p]www.bhf.org.uk/what-we-do[/p][p]Any donation you can spare will be greatly appreciated 😊😊[/p][p]Thank you ☺[/p]
