Life is the most unfair but yet precious gift. We are all blessed with the gift of life, however, it does not necessarily plan out the way we intended. I believe everything happens for a reason, and that reasons are positive; it might not seem it at the time, but in time it will.
I have been granted a place in the London 2018 Marathon supporting British Heart Foundation. I'm running in memory of my Dad John Henry McKenna. The 52 short, but fulfilled years this man lived was above and beyond all expectations for a Dad, Husband, Brother, Uncle and Friend. He was an extremely loved character and will continue to be forever missed. Not a day passes where John isn't in our thoughts. The unexpected and sudden loss of Dad was on the 22nd August 2015.
The heart is the body's engine, sometimes peoples engines don't run as efficiently as others. But together we can improve, develop, rebuild, and reconstruct our engines through the help of specialists and research. The more we know the more we can do, and the more we support the more long fulfilled lives we will live.
I appreciate any support in raising money for a cause that is true to my heart for many reasons. And I hope you can find a reason to support me on my journey.
For the British Heart Foundation!
For my Dad John Henry McKenna!
