My story

[p]I'm running the 2018 London Marathon for Starlight, a charity that brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children.[/p][p]I started running in my mid 30s, relatively late in life. The longest I've ever run is 15 miles. So the 26.2- mile London Marathon represents a real challenge for me, one I'm not completely sure I can handle.[/p][p]But the effort and pain will all be worth it if I succeed in raising funds for Starlight. It's tragic when anybody is afflicted with a serious illness, but it's especially so for young children whose lives still lie ahead of them and who might never have a chance to turn their dreams into reality. Starlight provides fun, laughter and entertainment for children in British hospitals and hospices, and it also organises experiences where children get to realise their dreams. In doing this they aim to restore the magic and excitement of childhood, and make happy memories for children and their families to share.[/p][p]None of this is possible without donations, and that's why I am extremely grateful for anything you can contribute.[/p]
