Originally I wasn't going to tell many people about doing Ironman just because of how tough the day is going to be, and I'm not even sure if I'll actually make it to the finish line... however, it seems like to good an opportunity to miss raising money for such a great cause!!!
My mum works with these children on a weekly basis and comes home with tales of all the energy, happy faces and how inspiring all the children are despite any difficulties that they face. Many people, including myself at times, do not realise how fortunate we all are, but hearing these stories helps bring a sense of perspective to things.
Even my Nan was touched by all the children when she attended the school show; becoming inspired by the courage, bravery and positivity of all of the children.
Hopefully any money that we can raise will go towards helping the great job that all the teachers and staff are doing at Redbridge High School
