Story

Updated on Sep 17th 2012 at 9:43 AM from the JustGiving API

I finished in a time of 2:05:19 and really enjoyed the run. High fived Ellie Simmonds and Greg Rutherford at the start and loads of kids at the finish :-)

Once again I'll be lacing up my trainers and running 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields.

I'm doing this to remember my baby sister, Ava who died at birth and to raise funds and awareness for Sands, a charity which supports anyone affected by the death of a baby. They also promote research that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives.

Did you know 17 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day in the UK? Shocking isn't it?

The death of a baby is a devastating experience for the whole family, so with your help, I'd like to help Sands carry out their very valuable work to support people who have been affected.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. they'll send your money directly to Sands and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on all eligible donations. 

So please, dig deep and give what you can. Thank you.
