My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page ! I must admit I am much better suited at giving donations rather than asking for them, but this is a big goal that I need all the help possible to achieve! [/p][p]I turn 40 this year and it is also the 10 year anniversary of losing Mum. I am sure if you have taken the trouble of following the link, then there is a good chance you already know me and would have at least heard of my mum Rose, even if you didn’t have the pleasure of meeting her.[/p][p]She was diagnosed with Lung cancer 9 months before we lost her and 10 years on there is still a very big mum shaped hole ! I was lucky to have been supported by St Wilfrids Hospice who provided much needed counselling and since then I have tried hard to pay back to them where ever possible. I volunteer at their fundraising events, pre Covid was volunteering on the ward and I am proud to be an Ambassador for this wonderful Hospice that offers such a valuable resource, and I was always going to try to fundraise for them. [/p][p]I have also recently been following the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation who are a dedicated lung cancer charity and have spent lockdowns running some of their runs and supporting them as well. Sadly with another family loss to this disease, I really want to raise their profile as well. [/p][p]So that is me and who I am running for. I’ve always used running as my way to have a bit of me time or to catch up with my running friends ! So I can run and have done all races except a marathon (well I have walked one before) and just thought why not put myself through a marathon to support two charities I truly believe in!![/p][p]I have asked my family and friends not to buy me gifts etc for my birthday, but to please help me achieve this huge ask - I will do the miles .... over to you lovely people to do the rest xxx [/p]
