My story

[p]So the first one was postponed because of the Virus, a new day has been hinted at in October, i will be doing it even if that one is postponed. Let me start by saying thankyou to all that have donated so far, that money is waiting and will be added to the overall total.[/p][p]The 25th of June 2020 marks one year since Kathy died. To say i miss her is an understatement, mending a broken heart takes time. I run alot and its remains the thing that keeps me sane and the blood pumping. Things have changed so much in the world that has left the children we work with in even worse situations and danger. Children are burnt, abused abandoned and im so glad charities like ours have continued to work in these strange times making sure the children we are in contact with get the support and care they need. I often go to sleep at night wondering about the children we work with, knowing they wont all feel safe and OK. Im running in October to raise money to make sure there are people out there looking after those children, im also running to prove that someone like me that is not a natural runner can do this..My son Evan has been working with me to produce a number of short films in which i talk about our work, running, PMA, pushing through grief. We hope yo enjoy them and it motivates you to be part of the solution. Love andy[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Many of you will know that I took up running as part of my process of working through the grief of losing my wife Kathy. I began running to find some space and clear my head and it really has helped. [/p][p]It will soon be a year since Kathy died and wanting to do something positive (as she always did) I want to use my running to raise money for the charity I work for because we make a real difference. [/p][p]Railway Children work with vulnerable children alone and at risk on the streets in the UK, India and East Africa. [/p][p]I know first hand the difference our workers make when contacting children when they first arrive on the streets and working with them to get them to a safer place. My job is to manage the child protection across these areas. This includes training, support and developing the best ways of working with children who are distressed and abused. [/p][p]So I'm asking you to support this great charity and make a real difference to the most vulnerable children of the world.[/p]
