My story

[p]On Sunday the 28th of April I will be running in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.[/p][p]Not only will this be the first time that I participate in this incredible event, but it will also be the first time that I attempt to complete the 42km required to finally call myself a marathon runner. Whilst I have always maintained a healthy and active lifestyle, the idea of a marathon is still a daunting thought and one I am still coming to grips with![/p][p]That said, I am thrilled to know that I will not be completing this event alone. It is with much pride that I will be representing Team Shelter at the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon. Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness with advice, support and legal services. And they campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to them for help. Shelter strive every day to give people the help they need, and they campaign relentlessly to achieve their vision of a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone.[/p][p]Shelter have had teams in the London Marathon for over 15 years and last year alone they raised £518,000. I am thrilled to join the team for the 2019 event and together, we will all do our very best to smash the incredible result achieved in 2018. [/p][p]Whilst I will be proud to represent Shelter for this event, and help them raise much needed funds, the amazing team at St Mungo's will also be at the front of my mind throughout the 42km stretch. From the moment I arrived in the UK, I have been overwhelmed and shocked by the number of people sleeping on the streets of London each and every night. Therefore, I recently began volunteering with St Mungo's by assisting their First Response & Outreach Teams - trying to help the cause any way I could![/p][p]Whilst asking for help or financial support is never something I would feel comfortable doing - today I am asking those very questions. I need your help. I need your help to ensure I can reach my goal of raising £2,000 for Shelter and I need to raise this money before reaching the starting line in April.[/p][p]Any donation, large or small, will be greatly appreciated and ensure that I can not only tackle the gruelling 42km that is the London Marathon, but I can also help Shelter tackle the even more confronting situation that is Homelessness in the United Kingdom.
