Firstly, thanks for taking the time to read my page :)
So...I am really proud to say that I am running the 2019 London Marathon for Lymphoma Action. As many of you know, this will not be my first Marathon, however this is by the far the most special and most important, because this is an opportunity for me to raise some vital funds for Lymphoma Action.
Everyone can unfortunately relate to, and has been affected by cancer, in some way or form. However, medicine is advancing and research is developing, therefore vital fundraising can help to hopefully one day eradicate this horrible disease. We need to stay positive because WE WILL BEAT cancer, but we have to do it together.
Lymphoma has personally affected both my friends and family over the past few years, therefore I have seen first hand the effects and aftermath that it can cause. As such, my aim is to act as an ambassador for Lymphoma Action by raising awareness and fundraising to hopefully one day help beat it....however I need your help 🙏🏻
I not only want to complete the marathon, I want to get round as fast as I possibly can!! I have a time in mind but I need to pull my finger out, shed some timber and get some training done first.
I’m sorry (not sorry!) to say that il be regularly updating you all with my progress (training runs), so hopefully you can see my improvement and then il stick my neck out and pinpoint my target before the event.
Thanks for your time.
