Story

For the last 9 months I have been working in A&E at the Royal London Hospital. These past 2 months have been extremely challenging due to a number of well documented reasons. However, I am proud to be a part of such a kind and hard working team. 

People who have met or worked with me know how much I love exercise & fitness. This year I had planned to do my first ultra marathon and was deep into my training plan. Running is my go to whenever I'm stressed or feeling overwhelmed. It has helped me cope with the anxieties I faced with coronavirus and the stress of A&E.

COVID may have cancelled my race, but that won't stop me completing another challenge this year

On the 4th of June I will be climbing up and down the Royal London Hospital Stairs (17flights!) for the duration of a normal A&E shift - 10 hours with two 30 mins breaks. I will be doing this to raise funds for Barts Charity COVID-19 Emergency Appeal.

The fight against coronavirus still has a long way to go and we need your generous donations to help fund the NHS and keep helping those affected by this virus.
