My story

[p][u]Raising money for Macmillan cancer support one last time at the Edinburgh Marathon 24/05/2020[/u][/p][p]As the finale of my raising money for the amazing Macmillan Cancer Support who have supported me every step, I am doing one last marathon to raise funds at the Edinburgh marathon on the 24th May 2020. This is to celebrate my 40th Birthday and prove that whatever life throws at you, with help and support you can get through anything, asking for help is never easy but we are all human and needing support is not a sign of weakness it’s a sign of knowing our limits and the real testament of ones strength. So many people have supported my journey over the last few years and I can’t thank everyone individually but I truly appreciate it ❤? I beg one last time for your sponsorship, every penny helps amazing people do amazing things for so many. [/p][p]Thank you ❤?❤?❤?[/p][p]Every person I know has either been personally touched by cancer or knows of someone that has had their lives torn apart by cancer, some of us including myself have been lucky but not all have made it through their cancer journey. I am begging everyone and anyone just to sponser me what ever you can afford to spare, to help those that continue to fight their battle, to provide vital resources to this amazing charity that work tirelessly to support not only the patients but the families [/p][p]Since April 2017 I have been completing events to raise money for those amazing Macmillan nurses that have helped me through the years in my own battle, I'm doing it with a smile on my face and usually a blister or two on my feet, so please spare some anything you can afford so that this charity can be there for many many more years to come!! Thank you!!!! You never know when you may need them!!! [/p][p]Below are the event's that I have done so far. Since April 2017, More will be added each week so please give generously!!![/p][p]You can also see these events in detail on my Strava, Instagram and Facebook accounts all under Lauryn Ava. I have also had 2 newspaper articles with my full cancer story in the daily mirror and chepstow beacon ( it won't allow me to add hyper links here but Google Lauryn Ava and they will come up :-)[/p][p][b]115) Crafty Fox Marathon 07/09/2019 - White Star Running [/b][/p][p][b]114) Dartmoor Marathon 31/08/2019 - Freedom Running [/b][/p][p][b]113) Midnight Marathon - South Downs 17/08/19 - Second wind running [/b][/p][p][b]112) Afan Forest trail marathon 27/07/2019[/b][/p][p][b]111) Race to the stones day 2 32 miles [/b][/p][p][b]110) Race to the stones day 1 32 miles [/b][/p][p][b]109) Midnight marathon 29/06/2019[/b][/p][p][b]108) Race to the kings 53 miles [/b][/p][p][b]107) Shepton Mallet prison marathon[/b][/p][p][b]106) Race to the Tower 53 mile Ultramarathon straight through 8th June[/b][/p][p][b]105) Phoenix Running Gold Marathon 2nd June 2019[/b][/p][p][b]104) Liverpool Rock “n” Roll Marathon 26th May 2019[/b] [/p][p][b]101 - 103) XNRG 97 mile 3 day event - Winchester - Eastbourne along the South Downs Way 4th - 6th May 2019[/b][/p][p][b]100) London Marathon 28/04/2019[/b][/p][p][b]99) Phoenix Marathon “A day at the movies” 15/04/2019 [/b][/p][p][b]98) Brighton Marathon 14/04/2019[/b][/p][p][b]97) Southwest Coast Path challenge marathon with Trail events co. 06/04/19[/b][/p][p][b]96) Dorset Ooser Trail Marathon with Badger Trail events 31/03/2019[/b][/p][p][b]95) Lulworth Ultramarathon 23/03/2019[/b][/p][p][b]93 /94) Howlers Double Ultramarathon 9th, 10th March 2019 [/b][/p][p][b]92) Chester Ultramarathon 02/03/2019[/b] [/p][p][b]91) Dirty Running Ultramarathon with Phoenix running 24/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]90) Jaw Dropper Ultramarathon with Phoenix running 23/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]89) Grease Lightening Ultramarathon with Phoenix running 22/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]88) Brecon to Cardiff ultra marathon 44 Miles with Run, walk, crawl 10/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]87) Maverick Race Oxfordshire dark edition 09/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]86) Mayhill Mayhem with Trimax 03/02/2019[/b][/p][p][b]85) Gloucester Marathon 20/01/2019[/b][/p][p][b]Sadly I had to take a couple of weeks off due to a family bereavement [/b][/p][p][b]84) Blade Runner Ultra Marathon (Brecon Beacon Mountains) 05/01/2019[/b][/p][p][b]83) Winter Cross Ultra Marathon 27/12/2018[/b][/p][p][b]Flu got me so I had to have 2 weeks off :-( [/b][/p][p][b]82) Hardmoors Wolds Way 80 mile ultra marathon 24/11/18[/b][/p][p][b]81) Brecon Beacons ultra marathon 17/11/18 50 miles [/b][/p][p][b]80) EDDUM ultra marathon 11/11/18 50 miles [/b][/p][p][b]79) Trail Events co.
