My story

[p]PC Nicola Hughes was murdered on duty doing the job she loved. In her name her father Bryn has turned her tragic loss in to something beautiful. Supporting children of murder victims. Those young people left behind without their parent. This years project is to assist in the funding to allow 4 individuals to go to university all of whom are the forgotten victims. [/p][p]After Nicola was tragically killed on duty in 2012 I heard her dad was asking for people to take part in a challenge. Run to Remember -125 days 2 miles a day. What appealed to me the most was two sayings - To ‘run walk or crawl’ and ‘Because I Can’ [/p][p]A slipped disc in my back had caused me to stop running. My leg drags and I fall over. I realised that even my leg dragging and it being hard I still could do it. Run walk or crawl....[/p][p]Since that first R2R in 2013 I have got stronger and have completed R2R every year since. In 2015 I challenged myself with the Great south run a 10 mile run! I had to pull out with injury- devastated! I finally picked myself up and in 2016 I did it! I was amazed and so proud. But not finished, I set my sights on the biggest half marathon in the world the Great North Run. In 2018 I did it! It was the hardest thing I’d ever done, the leg was agony. I was done. [/p][p]Then some one said how about the New York Marathon? ..... [/p][p]Run walk or crawl because I can......[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
