Myself & Tom have decided to run this years Bristol half marathon for The Hibbs Lupus Trust in support of Tom's beautiful and inspiring girlfriend Rachael, who has suffered with Lupus for the past 9 years. We are both incredibly proud of her amazing achievements and want to show our support by pounding the streets of Bristol for 13 long old miles.
The Hibbs Lupus Trust is a group of volunteers on a mission to raise awareness of lupus. They support people affected by lupus to make sure that no one faces lupus alone. Lupus is a chronic and presently incurable illness of the immune system. Rather than just fighting viruses, bacteria and infection by producing antibodies, your body starts to attack and destroy healthy cells, tissues and organs.

We would like to thank everyone for their donations and helping us to raise more awareness of Lupus!! xx
