My story

[p]I has been a Jessie May Nurse for 2 ½ years, and provide vital respite care in the homes of terminally ill children. I am combining my passion for my job and for running – and taking on a 24-hour running challenge to raise money for Jessie May![/p][p]On July 19th 2019, I will don a purple Jessie May running vest and prepare for a gruelling 24 hours of non-stop exercise for my own fundraiser: “The difference a day makes” – through the [url=https://www.continental-tyres.co.uk/car/company/contirunning]Conti Thunder Run[/url]. I aim to raise £3,000 for Jessie May through the challenge – the funding required to run our charity for 1 day.[/p][p]Jessie May is very close to my heart. I work for the charity as one of the nursing team that cares for the children on the Jessie May caseload. We are just a small part of an amazing team that enables Jessie May to function and provide support to families. As a Jessie May Nurse, I understand the enormous difference Jessie May’s support makes to families with a terminally ill child. The families the Jessie May nurses support are all incredible and I know how important it is that we are there to help. Many rely on our respite visits and emotional support and have said they’d now be completely lost without us. This is why I want to help raise money for Jessie May – I have seen the impact we have on families firsthand. The challenge that I have decided to undertake is to run as many 10km laps as I can in 24 hours through the 24 Hour Conti Thunder Run. It’s pretty extreme! I aim to raise at least £3,000 for Jessie May, as this is what it costs for the charity to run for 1 day.[/p][p]I know caring for a terminally ill child is an exhausting, 24-hour task; physically and emotionally. This 24-hour run is quite symbolic of the 24 hour care the children require and I hope by completing the 24 Hour Thunder Run, it inspires people to talk about Jessie May, and why our support is vital to families, and make a donation if they can.[/p][p]You can find out more about Jessie May and the families we support [url=https://www.jessiemay.org.uk/thedifferenceadaymakes/]here[/url][/p][p]I will also be writing a weekly blog and posting daily on Instagram, please support me and stay in touch by visiting both regularly, links to both are below [/p][p]The Difference a Day Makes Blog, click [url=https://thedifferenceadaymakesfundraiser.blogspot.com/]here[/url][/p][p]jm_running_nurse is my Instagram, click [url=https://www.instagram.com/jm_running_nurse/]here[/url] and please follow me.[/p][p]Thank you all for your support![/p][p]Steve [/p]
