    Story

    I'm doing this once and once only - I'm running (or attempting) the Birmingham Half Marathon on Sunday 15th October in memory of my beautiful friend Allyson who sadly lost her battle with cancer just over a year ago. She battled very bravely for 3 years and in that time had numerous visits to the oncology department at George Eliot hospital where the staff looking after her were both caring and compassionate. Hospital shortages meant there wasn't always enough fans available to patients having treatment so I would like to raise some money in memory of this courageous lady and hopefully raise enough money to buy them a couple of dyson fans

    Thank you for taking the time to read my story

      Thanks everyone for your very kind donations - it really is overwhelming. I have also had a couple of donations pledged offline ( from people that haven't got Facebook) so I'm well on target to reach my target of £400. Yesterday I took part in my first ever 10 mile race and boy did it take it out of my old body but I've got a goal to reach and that goal and determination will take me through to the 15th October

    From the woman who took up running just to prove that she couldn't run just over 2 years ago I wanted to do something for my friend Allyson who was receiving treatment at George Eliot hospital so here I am attempting the Birmingham Half in October
