On 19 May 2019, I will be running the Manchester Simplyhealth Half Marathon in support of Dignity in Dying's campaign for an assisted dying law to be introduced in the UK.
Every 8 days, a terminally ill UK citizen travels to Switzerland seeking assistance to die, costing on average £10,000 and often earlier than they would choose in fear that they will not be able to make the journey later. Each year 300 terminally ill people end their own lives in the UK using distressing and unregulated means, and often alone in fear that their loved ones will face prosecution by association.
