Story

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page - you are marvellous.

On 7th September I will be setting off from the City Hall in Los Angeles on a 2,850 mile journey running across America finishing on the steps of the City Hall in New York, hopefully in 53 days in order to try and set a new Female World Record.  The current record set in 1979 stands at 69 days 2 hours set by Mavis Hutchinson from South Africa.  

In 2007 my father sadly passed away from bladder cancer and in July 2010 my husband’s younger brother Mark lost his brave battle with lung cancer. They were both supported by the wonderful Marie Curie Nurses who not only made sure my father and Mark were pain free and comfortable, they also offered comfort and support to family members.

My family have lost two very special men who were loved and still missed but their last few days were made easier by the unconditional support given by these amazing nurses. Part of my run is to raise money to say thank you for everything they have done not only for me but for countless other families.

Thank you in advance for your donations, every pound donated will keep my feet moving forwards towards New York and hopefully a new Female Guinness World Record.
