Story

It's the biggest endurance challenge I will ever attempt, less than 100 people in the world have completed it. I am so lucky to have been selected as one of only 15 members to take on running 10 marathons in 10 days, in May 2014. Every day over 10 consecutive days I will run the Brathay Windermere Marathon, in the Lake District, yes that's right, not only is it 10 marathons in 10 days, it's the same marathon for each of the 10 days. 

A combination of physical and mental endurance.

The Brathay 10 in 10 is now in its 8th year and it's an honour to be invited to be part of such an amazing journey for such a worthwhile charity. Of course the fundraising part is also a challenge; on accepting my place in the team I have made a commitment to raise a minimum of £3000. That's where I really, really need your support please.

Brathay Trust help some of the most vulnerable, abused and disengaged to make a successful transition from adolescence to meaningful adult life. Operating from inner city and rural locations across the UK, they currently work with over 6000 young people each year. Specialist programmes target particular groups of young people who require specific support to improve their life chances: children in care, young people at risk of entering the criminal justice system and those involved in gangs or who are sexually exploited.

Please, please do give give whatever you can, this is such a worthwhile cause and every single pound donated will go towards helping these children. My journey and the pain of the challenge will last 10 days, however I know that on the 11th day I have the luxury of being able to return to my normal life, these abused and disadvantaged children sadly don't.

Every single donation is greatly appreciated, thank you.
