My story

[p][span=color: #800080;]Hi, thanks for visiting my page :)[/span][/p][p][span=color: #800080;] I am running the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon for Stroke Association. I am running this 1/2 marathon to challenge myself and raise money for a association close to my heart. I lost my Nan very quickly to a Stroke when I was 18 she loved all sports, especially athletics and always wanted me to become an olympic swimmer, didn't quite get that far but I know she would be very proud of me running through London Parks. I also run for my Mum who became a bionic women two years ago with a pace maker and is a high stroke risk.

Although it’s one of the leading causes of complex disability in the UK, far too many people don’t understand it or ever think it’ll happen to them.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #800080;]Around three quarters of stroke survivors lose the use of one of their hands, and everyday thousands of people have to learn to re-do the things they’ve always done, but using their other hand.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #800080;]The Stroke Association provides much-needed hope, inspiration, advice and support to stroke survivo[lt]span class="text_exposed_hide"[gt]...[/span][span=color: #800080;]Between 26 October and 1 November, we're calling on everyone to complete an everyday activity (or something you love) with the hand you wouldn’t normally use.[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #800080;]You could challenge your friends and family to ‘other hand’ bowling, or decorate your showstopper with your 'other hand', or create some 'other hand' Christmas tree decorations. Have some fun while raising funds for our work supporting stroke survivors.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #800080;]The Stroke Association has created a special ‘handful of ideas' fundraising pack to help you get started: visit [/span][url=http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.stroke.org.uk%2Fgiveahand&h=5AQGwGU49AQHOiudh45MWswJdJoNX-nPZnZo2R5L7TTsZRg&enc=AZMCLECf4h3nSJeFslsbJf07uDadHPt4zmkSTFTrSBrkicjvy3fH74bqAPfloLvV7j7TdTwvcKyxAaYYYYmzpoBcqeVQkGgGnwr2nNfbjbLU6z_KcOuxDcIQGauJwmg_a2Wcac-UcxvjR51Yes_yNVNYm87hBR_BNuOjhcGjn1ffXNW9vOx3RR2_4XTpu00K1j2GH2cSwR9s5oZsy_PI10eP&s=1][span=color: #800080;]www.stroke.org.uk/giveahand[/span][/url][span=color: #800080;] to download or request yours.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #800080;][lt]span style="color: #800080;"[gt][lt]span style="color: #800080;"[gt] [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p][lt]/div[gt]
