My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Over the last 10 years I have tackled 10k's, sprint triathlons, 1/2 marathons and mountains but this year for the first time ever, I will be joining thousands in the 2017 London marathon. Right now this seams like an impossible task but i know that with the correct training and help from my colleagues I WILL be able to do it. In the process i am raising money for a charity called Spinal Research.[/p][p]Since the age of 18 i have been fascinated by the human body and in particular the spine. in fact, the reason I qualified as a Sports Therapist was because I did work experience at a rehabilitation centre for individuals with spinal chord injury at the age of 21. i remember helping a young lad who was paralysed from his neck down because he had dived into a shallow swimming on holiday. I thought that could have so easily been me. It inspired me to continue on my path of rehabilitation and today although i do not directly work with spinal chord injuries I do endless rehab for patients with other spinal injuries.[/p][p]You may be suprised that every year 1000 people in Uk and Ireland are paralysed from an injury to their spinal chord and more than 2.5 million people world wide live with paralysis caused by spinal chord injury. Spinal research funds medical research around the world to develop effective treatments. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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]I really do appreciate all your support with this challenge and thank you in advance for your donation.[/p][p]P.s anyone fancies joining me for a training run you are more than welcome![/p][p]Bridget[/p]

Amazing challenge Bridget and brilliant cause. My brother was paralysed from the waist down 12 years ago in an accident - research to improve the outlook for usually fit young adults to continue their lives is definitely worth it GO BRIDGET GO Alex XXX
