My story

[p]Right then....here we go again. VERY last time I promise, and this one's a marathon....you know, 26.2 miles with my little legs and strapped down boobs - just think of the chafing.[/p][p]That said, this is a once in a lifetime, I'll likely never be this fit again, so when St Michael's entrusted me with their sole and therefore incredibly valuable charity place in the London Marathon I kind of need to smash the fundraising target and I'll be forever grateful to you all for helping me do it. [/p][p]Don't worry I'll be chucking dosh in the pot monthly too....along with running the miles....did I mention the chafing....![/p][p]So. St Michael's. It's a very special charity here in Harrogate. It's rare to meet someone that hasn't been supported by this wonderful organisation who support and give care to individuals and their families at the most difficult time in their lives. [/p][p]In short, St Michael's exists to help people with terminal illness to live and die well. They do this by offering specialist care, comfort and support, [u]free of charge[/u], to patients and their families.[/p][p]Help me raise funds for them whilst you're tucked up warm and I'm out in the windy, cold rain checking kit for chafe.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p]
