On the 28th April 2019 I will be painting myself purple again and possibly donning my wings and tutu as "The Purple Fairy", (ask me why I may not be) and running the Virgin London Marathon granting wishes for kids (get it!!!).
I am looking to raise at least £1,000 for Wishes 4 Kids and that is the most important thing.
So, for anyone who doesn't know why I am doing this again then please take a seat and read on......
I was widowed in November 2004 when Laura was knocked down and killed by a dangerous driver. In my late wife's memory, Wishes 4 Kids were kind enough to start a fund so that we could continue to raise money in Laura's name. This is the "Laura Hulbert Fund for Wishes 4 Kids". This will the 12th London Marathon I will have run for Wishes 4 Kids in a row.
Wishes 4 Kids has been created to grant a wish for children and youngsters in Leicestershire who are life limited, terminally ill, have experienced life-changing physical or emotional traumas, have suffered major abuse or are diagnosed as HIV Positive. The Charity grants wishes for those of eighteen years of age and below.
Wishes 4 Kids has already granted hundreds of wishes for local children.
Sadly, there is no magical cure for the suffering of these youngsters, however, we can all help bring a short period of respite. The time when a child has a wish granted is a moment that will be treasured by them for the rest of their life. It is also a time which parents will remember - that time when their child forgot the suffering.
So come on everyone......give a little, give a lot; but make a difference to a child's life!!!
So please dig deep and donate now. We all really appreciate it.
