Team story

[p]On 29th August 2018 at 9.57pm, the tiniest, bravest and strongest little superhero I've ever met arrived on the planet. My nephew, Max Henry McHugh, was absolutely perfect in every single way.[/p][p]But on 2nd February 2019, Max became unwell and we soon found out that he had an ExtraRenal Rhabdoid Tumour, a highly malignant childhood cancer. Max The Brave fought as hard as he could, for as long as he could and with a beautiful smile on his face. [/p][p]Sadly, on 11th August 2019, Max went to sleep forever. [/p][p][b]But his story doesn't end there. [/b][/p][p]That brave lil guy has got all of his family and friends doing things that they'd never even dreamed of doing. In October, a huge group of us took part in a 5k run to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. In December, we ran another 5k to raise money for his [url=http://maxthebravefund.org][b]Max The Brave Fund[/b][/url]. His Nanny and Great Auntie have made book covers and bags to sell to raise money. His mummy spends hours every week fundraising. His daddy has even signed up to do the marathon in 2020! How amazing is that?[/p][p][b]But why stop there?[/b][/p][p]Thanks to Max, I have now caught the running bug and - as a way to make sure that I stick at it - I've decided to take on the [b]Lands' End to John O'Groats Virtual Challenge[/b]. This challenge should see me run, jog or walk (or scoot!) [b]1,083.8 miles in 52 weeks[/b]. I was going to start this challenge on the 1st January, but why wait? I'm starting it now![/p][p]So, if you would like to encourage me, please send in a donation no matter how big or small. I'll post regular updates on here and on social media so that you can see my progress. I'm aiming to raise £1,083 in total - that's £1 per mile![/p][p]Max has inspired us all to do things that previously seemed impossible. Perhaps together, we can find a cure for all childhood cancers. Let's do this![/p][p][br][/p][p]---[/p][p]I get "postcards" as I complete various stages of the challenge. Here's the first![/p][p][img]https://www.myvirtualmission.com/imagegen/conq_postcards/postcard/48254.jpg[/img][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
