Story

This year I've set myself the challenge to train and run in a series of events leading up to entering a local half Marathon in September. I started training around April 2017 and now have set my first of several challenges.

50 miles in March, April and May.......150 miles in 3 months

Following this I will be participating in 5k and 10k Races, then Redcar half marathon... and maybe a few other cheeky events inbetween .....

The reason I'm doing this, the NHS..... The RVI Newcastle Children's Hospital has played a major role in my sons and families life over the past four years and I cannot Thank them enough for their encouragement, help and everything that they have done for my son. Unfortunately some children experience long stays, and for parents too, the days are long....... This year I finally feel like I have time to train and challenge myself to raise some money for the children's department so they can invest in toys/books/entertainment etc. to help families when staying in hospital.

Thanks for reading this, I will keep you updated

    Redcar half marathon complete 🙌🙌 Never been so nervous for an event but today was momentous. Had to hold back the tears at one point but me and my running buddies smashed it👍 I cannot thank everyone enough for their donations you have been amazing. I will be visiting Kirks consultant in December so will keep you updated when Kirk hands the donation over. Until then I will keep running and try to raise a few more pounds 👍 Next lined up ... 10 miler in October. Cross country events and waiting to hear in the VLM 2919 Ballot 👍👍
