I am running the London marathon - my first ever marathon! I am running to raise money for British Heart Foundation, a charity whose work means a lot to me. My brother Timmy died when he was 3 years old due to a congenital heart disease, 28yrs ago. I am running to help further research into the field of congenital heart disease so that heart defects may one day be prevented altogether.
I will be pounding the streets of London for the next 20 weeks so your donations will really help keep me going through the cold and wet winter runs!
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's only thanks to support from fundraisers and donators that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures.
Every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target!
