My story

[p]On April 22nd 2018, I am running the London Marathon to raise money for the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre at Mount Vernon Hospital. I am raising money for Paul Strickland because my Mother in Law, Margaret, was treated there when she was battling cancer. She was always so complementary about the care and support they gave her. [/p][p]Last year, my wife, Gina was supposed to run the London Marathon to raise money for Paul Strickland. Unfortunately, because of hours and hours of dancing jigs and reels as an Irish dancer in her youth, with her mum tapping along to the steps, her knees could no longer endure the impact of running. Much to her disappointment, she found this out last year after completing a twelve mile training run. She had to forfeit her entry. [/p][p]So, I am running the Marathon in memory of my mother in law, Margaret. [/p]
