My story

[p]On the 28th April 2019, I will be running my first ever Marathon to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. [/p][p]The Make-A-Wish foundation helps grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. When a child is fighting a critical illness, their future is uncertain and their whole family’s world is turned upside down. That's why wishes are so important. Once their most cherished wish is granted, a child will see that anything is possible; it gives them and their family the emotional strength they desperately need to fight their condition and hope to face their future – whatever it might hold. [/p][p]I've spent many years working with kids, and to see their care free energy and happiness is so special, and the thought that not every child is gifted the ability to just be a kid is heartbreaking. A child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis - it should be about wonder, joy and hope. Let's give some kids the chance to be kids.[/p][p]A wish gives a desperately ill child and their family time away from hospitals and gruelling treatment, providing precious memories to treasure forever – whatever the future may hold. With the support of volunteers, donors, fundraisers and corporate partners, Make-A-Wish has turned more than 10,000 wishes into magical realities, and I need you to help me enable them to grant a few more![/p][p]This is definitely the biggest challenge i've taken on, and I really hope you can support me by donating whatever you can to help this incredible charity.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Love,[/p][p]Tom[/p]
