Story

I have always wanted to run the London Marathon but never believed I would be able to.  Just over a year ago I started running to lose weight for my brother’s wedding.  At the time I couldn’t run for more than 5 minutes without stopping.  I persevered and a year later I have run 2 half marathons.

The Guide Dogs For the Blind is a charity very close to my heart.  I have looked after 5 guide dogs whilst they have been in training and how they help those that need it is amazing..  Working so closely with the trainers and dogs I can see how valuable all contributions are.  One gentleman I met hadn’t been able to go to a coffee shop by himself until the age of 40.  He was given his first dog, the dog gave him the companionship and guidance he needed.

I am aiming to raise £2000 for this huge personal challenge.  Every sponsorship will not only support the puppies but will also provide the encouragement for the training ahead.
