Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page, every penny will change the lives of people you may or may not know, so really ' every little helps' (mum worked at Tesco forever).

As you probably know by now that my mum passed away on the 26th June 2008 after suffering a heart attack on the 13th March 2008. Mum had a family history of heart disease and I wanted to help fund more research into this all too familiar disease that too many of us know little about and can do so much about.

The London Marathon is being run on Mums birthday in 2009 so please help me help others by raising some money for research into the reasons why people die from heart disease. I hope to easily pass my target, you can not put a price on your own health and when someone you love suffers from something that changes your life forever, you feel like you really should do something to change the future.

I ran the marathon in just over 5 hours in the end. Lost nearly half a stone in weight and got a great vest tan. It was a truly magical experience and made even more special by my family and friends that were with there to cheer me on.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: British Heart Foundation gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation. DON'T FORGET TO CLICK THE BOX

So please sponsor me now!
