Story

Many thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I’m running both the London and Brighton marathons in April and it would be really good if you spare a few moments and sponsor me. I am raising money for the Springboard Project who provide support and respite services for child with special needs.

The Springboard project truly makes a difference to our lives and the lives of the families that use them, they provide respite sessions and clubs that allow the children to go into a safe environment and experience so many opportunities that are not available as they cannot access mainstream clubs. It also provides time for the family to have a break and for us personally time to reconnect with the other children.

Now a little backstory, I’ve always been sporty but have only been running since late 2015, I was truly bitten by the bug. It all started when someone suggested doing a 10k for charity, how bad could it be I thought well after 1km into training my lungs were ready to explode. Well I managed to get through the race and that was it no more than 10k, well two years later and I’m somehow doing a half marathon, then the thought goes through my head let’s do a marathon. Yes, I am mad!!

Well I entered for the ballot for the London Marathon but no one gets that at the first attempt so I also entered for the Brighton Marathon, well turns out I did get a place in London so I’m now doing two marathons over the space of three weekends. I start with Brighton and finish with London.

Thank you for any support you can give as Springboard is a small local charity who don’t get national press and backing, they rely on small donations such as my fundraising to continue and provide the truly fantastic services and support they offer the young people therefore they will be grateful of any donation you can make so they can continue to change the lives of families for years to come.
