I am running my first (and possibly last) marathon for Parkinson’s UK because my dad has been diagnosed with Parkinson's.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I started running for fun about 5 years ago and was really pleased when I completed my first 5 km run. Since then I've done the Race for Life in Cambridge and the London Moonwalk. I really wanted to run a marathon before I hit the big '50' but wasn't sure I would be successful when entering the ballot for this year's London Marathon. When I learnt I had got in I was really excited, but this was quickly followed by thinking 'What have I done?'! I've been training really hard and am determined to complete it.

I'm running it to raise money for Parkinson's as my dad was diagnosed with it about 7 years ago and it's been hard to see the way it has affected him. Any money that I'm able to raise will go towards researching this disease which affects so many people. Thank you for any donation you are able to give - it will all help to keep me going!
