    Story

    So it is probably a bit of a cliché to many, but I really do have an appreciation of life!

    There have been periods in time where I felt my life was hard, thought why me? But in the last few years I have realised and come to appreciate how fortunate I have been up until now, I really can’t complain. Over the past few years seeing family and friends have to deal with a variety of defining illnesses and life changing events I started to wonder what support I would need in the face of such changes to get me through daily activities that now seem minor. I must admit I have taken a lot of my life for granted. Although I have always tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I also acknowledge that many more factors are beyond my control.

    I have chosen these charities after much deliberation; there are so many charities registered that need help from fundraisers to continue the great work they do. Through life, family and friends my chosen charities are a little personal.

    Tommy’s – fund research into pregnancy problems as they believe that any miscarriage is unacceptable
    Autism West midlands – provide direct support to people with autism and those who love and care for them
    Papyrus – believe that many young suicides are preventable with the right support which they provide through their HOPElineUK as well as campaigning and influencing policy.
    Dementia UK - provide compassionate 1:1 support and expert advice through their admiral nurse team who work hand in hand with families to more confidently face the challenges of living with dementia.

      As the countdown to me taking on the last race of this challenge approaches, I'm not sure which has caused more anxiety over the last 8 wks, that or writing this post about why I'm running this for Tommy's. Without hesitation I included Tommys in my fund raising. You will have worked out my charities are personal and miscarriage has been a part of my life. Tommy's offer support to mom AND DAD together or separately, Father's don't get it twisted, it can affect you too, don't be afraid to ask for help. RIP: E,P & S - love always, my angels.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    I have set myself a challenge that is outside of my comfort zone. Having trained 12 months to run one half marathon in 2016, I am now proposing to run two half marathons and one full marathon in 2017 and in doing so raise awareness and funding for four charities.
