    Story

    You when something just gets you and you feel you need to do something to help in your own way. Well this is what happened to me the more I get to know Geraint and his amazing family the more I feel I just need to do a little bit more.
    Since suffering from a near fatal asthma attack back in 2014 it left Geraint with severe brain injury he is now confined to a wheelchair and relies on his parents Julie & Chris and sister Kayley for all his personal care, feeding and the many medications he has to take. I have seen some of the struggles they've had an I'm in awe of how they just keep dusting themselves down and battling on so Geraint has the best possible chance of rehabilitation.
    I am going to run the Cardiff half marathon on October 1st and I'm hoping to raise £200 for Geraint Richards Trust Fund if you could spare a few ££ please donate, you will be helping an awesome young man on his very long difficult road to recovery.
    Thanks for taking the time to read 💖

      It was a tough day yesterday picked up a niggle really early on and it progressively got worse as the run progressed sending pain from my glute/hip up and down my leg 😬. I was hoping to finish sub 3hrs but realised this wasn’t going to happen focused on getting to the finish line. All your support and thinking of Geraint got me through it. Surprised and chuffed to say I finished in 3:08:00 that’s 11mins quicker than last year 😁. I’ve pre registered for 2018 Cardiff Half we have unfinished business 💪🏼 Massive thank you for donations 😘😘😘

      It’s the eve before the big day ...Cardiff Half 2017eeeek!!!! Final preparations are underway kit is ready and bag is packed. Feeling nervous and really not looking forward to the weather predicted but I’m sure the atmosphere and all the support will distract me. It’ll be an amazing experience and no doubt there’ll be some tough times but during those times I’ll be thinking of the reason I signed up ...GERAINT RICHARDS a true hero who battles everyday and still manages to smile 😃. There’s still time to donate 😘 Thx to all those that have 💖

      Today I took part in Swansea 10k in the cold drizzly rain wearing last years #TeamGeraint t-shirt. Bit of a mental battle today. These are the runs you learn most from so I'm told. Hearing the cheers "Go on Team Geraint!" "Great running Team Geraint!" reminded me why I'm here and why I started running. Thinking of Geraint and the daily battles he has to go through never fails to motivate me. I'm so chuffed to say thinking of Geraint spurred me on to achieve a PB😁 Cardiff half I think I'm ready for you. Thanks to you all for the support 😘😘
