My story

[p]On Sunday 26th April 2020 I’ll be taking part in the London Marathon in memory of my Dad, Paul Lyons.[/p][p]In September 2013, we lost my Dad very suddenly to a heart attack. A multi-marathon runner himself, I will be following in his footsteps (literally) to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.[/p][p]Upon securing a place, I took part in a 10km in Cape Town and have now run several distances in excess of 15km. I’ll also be taking part in a Half Marathon race in March, which itself is a huge challenge for someone who couldn’t even run half a kilometre two years ago![/p][p]I am proud to be representing the British Heart Foundation which supports pioneering life-saving research and since it was established, the annual number of deaths from Cardiovascular disease in the UK has fallen by around a half - however, they still account for 1 in 4 of all deaths in the UK.[/p][p]If we can raise enough money to prevent just one family from going through the same situation as mine have, every mile has been completely worth it![/p][p]Any donation is so important and hugely appreciated.[/p]
