Thank you for looking at my page.
My name is Christopher Gray - I am a type 1 diabetic - Levimer and novorapid and I was diagnosed on the 22nd November 2008 at the age of 22
For the better part of three years I have done a series of personal challenges.
But before I go into brief detail about what I am doing the story is that my Gran Pat Little from a town in Annan Scotland had her ovarian cancer - she was a warrior but sadly in March 2014 she couldn't fight anymore and sadly she passed away.
Our family and I miss her every day.
Three years ago I wanted to do some charity work on behalf of my Gran who got diagnosed with the condition about doing a series of challenges on her behalf. In the time I said I was doing five challenges and raise some much vital funds for her I decided and completed - 1st Shave my hair off. 2. Walk a 72 mile walk from Hamilton to Dumfries 3. Scottish half marathon 4. climb ben nevis and 5. Was a series of runs in a bunny suit and finishing it off with the Manchester marathon and when I moved to Australia for six months - the Sydney Australia marathon dressed as William Wallace from the hit movie Bravehart.
In 2014 I continued doing the running in the bunny suit having done six half marathons and many 10k & 5k fun runs across Scotland and england
In 2015 I decided to up my challenges - this time I have challenged myself a bit more and have persued going for ultra marathons and a minimum of fifteen marathons in 2015 across the UK and two international marathons - Cyprus for my summer holiday vacation& somewhere else.
