Story

I am upping the running game and braving the London Marathon April 2018. I have recently completed my 2nd half marathon and want to push myself and show others it IS possible to achieve big sporting events even with Type 1 Diabetes. I have been diabetic now for 8 years and have never let it stop me doing anything. Diabetes causes me struggle day in and day out with the amount of injections and finger pricks I do plus with how low it makes my immune system. I want to not only raise money but raise awareness around the stigma about Diabetes and that it's not to do with being fat, overweight and unfit!! Not only do I have diabetes but also my sister so my family are very affected by this horrible illness! In order to complete my challenge I need to raise a minimum of £1850... which I know is a lot but with everyone help I know I can do it!! I will be adding updates of how I am getting on with training to keep you all posted.. thanks for reading 🏃🏻🏃🏻
