Thank you for clicking on the link and visiting my page. I have decided to take part in the Simply Health Great North Run on 10 September 2017 to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. As some of you know, I lost my Mum in last year very suddenly giving us no time to say goodbye. No one should have to go through the trauma we did. I would like to take these challenges on to raise money for research into heart disease that is so incredibly important. It will also do me the world of good both physically & mentally ;-) I'm not a natural athlete so this will be really incredibly tough but there is no other motivation or cause I would do it for now so I would be exceptionally grateful for your support. The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It doesn't really hit home until it happens to you, believe me. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £25 could pay for an hour of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target. Any donation however small would mean more to me than you can imagine and such a lot to the charity. 

You can donate online or via text by texting the code BHFR64 to £1, £2, £3, £4. £5 or £10 70070

Thank you in advance,

Much Love ❤❤❤❤❤

P.S. anyone wanting to join me and make a BHF team, you're very welcome :-)
