Here we are again......I’m raising money for Kingfisher School in Abingdon. A special needs school for children and young adults. My adorable Joshua’s school. Also, my lovely friend Natalie, her son Connor also attends this school.
As many of you know already, i’d usually run a marathon to raise money, but as this would be my fifth marathon i thought i‘d up my challenge and do something completely idiotic..... which will be to run RACE TO THE STONES 100k Non-stop on the 14th july (this is approx 62 ish miles)
The joke here is that i could have and should have gone for the 50k option for my first ultra haha, but no that would be far too sensible.
My nephew has Autism, and is non-verbal, day to day life can be extremely difficult. Anything from a change of routine, loud noises or crowded rooms can be very upsettling.Joshy and my sister are heroes in my eyes. They are a little team,along with jamie, (my sisters boyfriend )and my mum and dad. Joshy also has two number one fans, Ruby-Anna and Archie,my two little people( his cousins)
So with them in my thoughts, i will take on this ridiculous challenge and will make them as proud of me as i am of them. my day of pain is nothing compared with his daily struggles. I will dig deep and give it my all.
Please, please help me raise money for this incredible school. Joshy has come along leaps and bounds since starting this school.The staff are amazing. The passion and kindness they give to these adorable children everyday is overwhelming and inspirational.
