My story

[p]At the beginning of 2018 I decided to take control of my health and lose some weight - I was verging on 16 stone and something had to be done. I started doing a lot of walking, added swimming into the mix, and then running seemed the natural progression. So, a year ago, I took my first steps to becoming a runner – something I never thought I’d say!! After a while, and with the weight dropping off, Matt decided to join me and we both stuck with it, much to our surprise. What’s more, we even enjoy it (most of the time). [/p][p]The time seems right for our next exercise challenge, so Matt and I have decided to take part in our first competitive race (eek), the ASICS London 10k on 21 July. To make all the hard work, aches, pains and sweat worthwhile, we’ve decided to raise money for Half Moon, a theatre in East London that helps young people achieve their potential through the power of the arts.[/p][p]Over 53% of children in Tower Hamlets live in poverty (after housing costs) according to End Child Poverty campaign figures published in January 2018. This is almost 10% higher than the next local authority on the list. Please help Half Moon continue their important work with young people across Tower Hamlets in nurseries, schools, colleges and community and youth organisations, using drama to enable lives.[/p]
