My story

<p>On Sunday&nbsp;18 September 2011, I completed the Great North Run in a personal best time of 1hour 57 mins 32 seconds.</p> <p>I chose to run this race in memory of my baby sister, Ava. Last February, my whole family was&nbsp;looking forward to a new arrival, but sadly, baby Ava was stillborn.</p> <p>That's why I am proud to honour her memory and raise funds and awareness for Sands, a charity which supports anyone affected by the death of a baby and promotes research&nbsp;that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives.</p> <p>Did you know 17 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day in the UK? The death of a baby is a devastating experience for the whole family, so with your help, I'd like to help Sands carry out their very valuable work to support people who have been affected.</p> <p>I've set up this page to make&nbsp;it easy. Once you donate, Virgin Money Giving will send your money directly to the charity (I just get to see your lovely messages of encouragement). And if you're a UK taxpayer they'll reclaim Gift Aid on every eligible donation&nbsp;- so the charity gets even more.</p> <p>So please, dig deep and give what you can. Thank you.</p>
