My story

[p]I've joined the Dementia Revolution; the official Charity Team of the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019. [/p][p]As most of my nearest and dearest know, my incredible Mum, Brenda, has suffered with Alzheimer's Dementia for a number of years. My Dad, John, is her main carer and works so hard to meet her complex needs. To see Mum so frail and unable to speak or communicate is heart-breaking. Mum supported Dad through dozens of house moves whilst he served in the Army, gave us 4 boys CONSTANT love, support, reassurance and nurture, and the cruelty of this disease has left it's awful mark upon her.[/p][p]I've worked hard to improve my physical fitness, have run 9 half marathons to date, but London represents the hardest challenge of them all. I know how tired I have felt on finishing 13.1 miles, so to attempt 26.2 is a giant leap forward. Your support can help me train harder, run further, and believe that I CAN do this. It's for my Mum, and many thousands similarly affected. PLEASE, help me reach my £2000 target, your support in my running journey has been outstanding, let's do it one more time.......[/p]
