  • Event: London Marathon 2018, 22 Apr 2018

Virgin London Marathon 2018

On Sunday 22nd April 2018, take on the London Marathon. Take on this challenge and get sponsored for every step of the way to help us reach a future where diabetes can do no harm.

Charity Registration No. 215199


I have known Hazel and Simon for 15 years. Their son Bill was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 4 years old and I have known him his entire life. 

I have seen the difficulties and challenges that having Type 1 diabetes has caused him and his family and also to see a little boy grow up to be a teenager and the challenges he has gone through and will continue to do so. I have watched as technology has changed over the years and am excited about new technologies and treatments that can help to create a world without diabetes. 

Being able to contribute something towards the research of treatments, cures and technologies for both Bill and others by raising funds for Diabetes UK is an honour. #hopeisinacure

A bit about me, I'm married, have 2 young children (6 and 1), unfortunately a knee injury a few years ago made me wave goodbye to my (glittering?!) football career, after an operation and rehab I found running again thanks to a local parkrun and then joining a local running club Wrexham AAC. Since then I have run many races at various distances including half marathons.  I now need my next goal, running the London Marathon has always been an ambition, 26.2 miles is a very long way though!

Thank you to my workplace, Elegance Natural Skin Care, they are very supportive, as are many of our fantastic customers.

Diolch yn fawr/Thank you!
