During University I met the most warm and kind family who helped and supported me. Through many great trips to Ireland I visited the Toner family, who warmly greeted me and were always so generous with bottomless cups of tea, great advice and open hearts. The eldest brother Gary was a role model for us all being genuine and hard-working. He is just one of those guys you know cares about everyone, puts everyone else first and just wants people to be healthy and happy. This is one of the times where the worst luck happens to the best people. Gary and Lucy, his wonderful wife, were blessed with three great children. An older girl then twin girls. The second twin had complications at birth, I won't list the problems here but have a look at the link. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/evietonersjourney This great family have slogged night and day to give little Evie the best chance at life. To see their dedication to their daughter and the constant work they do to provide for their family, I want to help them and show them the massive amount of respect I have for them. This family have had a knock but keep fighting as a unit. Believe me, after running for Zahra and seeing the Cleave family pull through the worst times with smiles on their faces, I know that by donating you give more than money; what you give is hope and support. So lets pull together for Gary and his family. Honestly, you could not be supporting a more worthwhile cause.
I will do the Ironman in Australia for Evie! Help me make this endevour more than just a race!
Zahra on the up and up everyday! We see her smile and laugh. Let help Evie the same amazing way!
