My story

[p]Hi, thanks for coming to my page I hope this will mean you are going to donate! [/p][p]My story is short and sweet.... I am lucky enough to be fit, healthy and have an amazing family and friends to support me. So why not.... I wanted a challenge, to give something back and to raise money for a truly amazing charity. I thought running a marathon would be an excellent way to do this. [/p][p]Being a teacher I hope to encourage other young people to take on their own life challenge whatever that may be. Running this marathon is not going to be a breeze, it will be my first, so I hope this will inspire others too. [/p][p]250 children in the UK, aged 0-14 years lose their lives to cancer every year, your donation supports research, treat these children and support their families through a time no parent should have to go through.[/p][p]On completion of the London marathon I will then be preparing for my next challenge running an Ultra Marathon 55 km in the Lake District. The money that you donate will really motivate me to complete these challenges as I feel I am going to need it!! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
