Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Last year I ran 12 events in 12 months to raise money and awareness for MIND , the mental health charity . In previous years I have raised money for the Children’s Society to protect vulnerable people from exploitation , and also for Vine House Preston who provide support to people being treated for cancer including my Dad . This year I have decided to raise money for Alder Hey children’s Charity . The first reason is that I have been lucky to have 3 healthy girls - , the eldest of my children now 17 along with my wife received much pre natal support from the health service due to significant problems in pregnancy. We remain eternally grateful . Secondly I spent a great deal of time last year in my privileged role as a senior Police Officer in Merseyside working with staff from Alder Hey and saw the amazing dedication that was provided to children and their families by Alder Hey staff. I also saw the impact that caring for a poorly child has on the child the,selves, on their families and on the staff providing the care . So I thought this year I would seek to push myself further than I have before by running a 100km in beautiful Bakewell in July - whilst this will be tough in the training and the event , it clearly pales into insignificance with what children and their carers go through being treated for many different life threatening conditions at Alder Hey- any support you can give no matter how much I am sure will be well spent on those that really need it - thank you so much for your support
