Story

Hi everyone

First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit my page and read my story.

Running the London Marathon has been a goal of mine for several years. Having tried unsuccessfully to enter for the last six years, I was fortunate to win a place in the bequest ballot draw. So this year, on my 40th birthday, I received confirmation of my place for 2019. I was over the moon! But now the hard part... training and fund raising!

I’ve chosen to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund. This charity is integral to the entire RAF family, whether you’re a serving member or ex-serving member or a wife or husband, parent or child of someone who has had the privilege of serving in the RAF. 

I have witnessed first hand the people that the RAFBF support. I was fortunate and honoured to participate in numerous aeromedical and repatriation events, during the 7 years I spent as a C17 Ground Engineer. In these circumstances, the responsibility of airworthiness of the aircraft was my responsibility. Having returned the affected person home via either Brize Norton or Birmingham, my involvement ended there. Running the London Marathon is my opportunity to help with continued support.
