I am running the Paris Marathon, my first marathon for two great charities, Changing Faces and The Pride Trust.
Changing Faces began its work in 1992 to help people who have a disfigurement find a way to live the life they want.
Changing Faces help people to conquer fears, in taking the first steps and ultimately taking control, by being on a client’s side and by their side as they define their own sense of identity, their purpose and realise their dreams. Changing Faces help build people’s confidence to live their life on their terms and challenge prejudice, respect differences and speak to a world that needs to change.
The Proud Trust is a live saving and life enhancing organisation that helps young people empower themselves to make a positive change for themselves and their communities. We do this through youth groups, peer support, managing the drop in centre for Manchester, delivering of training and events, Campaigns, undertaking research and creating resources.
For people who know me, I am someone who is a complete car-a-holic. This is a huge challenge for me and is already pushing me beyond my comfort zone (the 4am training sessions are a killer), all for 2 great causes.
I really hope YOU will support me in this amazing journey.
