Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I've signed up to run the 10K next April to raise funds for St Bart's Hospital. For nearly 5 months they have fought to save the life of my brother and the resilience, resourcefulness and dedication of the Critical Care team has been amazing. As has my brother. He has fought against the odds and is now, thankfully, on the way to recovery.
When I was young my brother tried to take me out running, without much success. Now, in honour of him and in thanks to the team at St Bart's I will run my little, chubby legs off to raise funds for them so that future lives can be saved and future families spared the heartache of losing somebody they love.
I'm not a natural runner and I know it's not a marathon, but to me it will feel like it.
I know times are hard for everyone and there are lots of wonderful people raising funds for wonderful causes, but if you can spare something, every penny, like every heartbeat or breath we take, counts.
