My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]For those that may not know on the 14th February this year my mother Patricia passed away after suffering from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) after being ill for sometime. As many of you may know I do enjoy my running and thought what better way to raise a few pounds to help others than participate in 4 running events this year whilst raising a few pounds for THE BRITISH LUNG FOUNDATION[/p][p]The first event and probably the most significant will be the Great Birmingham 10K run on the 1st May 2016 as this would have been my mothers 73rd birthday.[/p][p]The last one to round it off will be on the 16th October 2016 and this would be a day after my parents would have celebrated their 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary[/p][p]I will be attempting to complete this run in Fire Kit and Breathing Apparatus (as you can see from my profile picture) whilst collecting money en-route.[/p][p]Other events include:[/p][p]Edinburgh Marathon 29th May 2016. DONE[/p][p]Great Midlands Run 5th June 2016 with Daniel Shakespeare my son. DONE[/p][p]Great Birmingham Half Marathon 16th October 2016 where I may run in Fire kit again.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to THE BRITISH LUNG FOUNDATION. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations however big or small.[/p]
