Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you may or may not know my beautiful little girl Halle-Rose has cystic fibrosis, so i wanted to do yet another thing which will be challenging this year to help raise money for the Trust and awareness of what exactly Cystic Fibrosis is.

So this year i have decided to really challenge my self with a tough challenge. I'm going to attempt to run the length of Hadrian's Wall from Newcastle to Carlisle which is 70 miles in length and I'm going to do it in under 24hrs. This will be my toughest challenge to date and will really push me mentally and physically. The reason i have chosen something like this is because i want you to feel like its worthwhile sponsoring me as i know that this will be the 2nd or even 3rd time you have sponsored and for that i am truly grateful it really does mean the world to me and i hope i can do you all proud.

Heres just a few facts about Cystic Fibrosis


- Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening inherited diseases;

            It is caused by a faulty gene that controls the movement of salt and water in and out of the cells within the body.

            Cystic Fibrosis affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, by clogging them with thick sticky mucus. This makes it hard to breathe and digest food.

            Over 9,000 people in the UK have Cystic Fibrosis.

            If two carriers have a child, the baby has a 1 in 4 chance of having Cystic Fibrosis.

            Over two million people in the UK carry the faulty gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis - around 1 in 25 of the population.

            Over 95% of the UK CF population is Caucasian, but CF affects many ethnic groups.

            Each week, FIVE babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis.

            Each week, TWO young lives are lost to Cystic Fibrosis.


            THERE IS CURRENTLY NO CURE FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS!!!! Through research, better understanding and treatment of Cystic Fibrosis, life expectancy is increasing. When the CF Trust was founded in 1964, a child was lucky to live over five years. Today half of those living with Cystic Fibrosis are likely to live past 41 years - not good enough, but getting better.

So as you can see its something that is getting better and by you donating money it will help in the future.

I hope you will be kind enough to donate some money and sponsor me for what really is a worthy cause and for something i really am passionate about.
