Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!
I am undertaking 6 marathon races in 2018, and so far have completed the Liverpool Rock and Roll (May), Northumberland Coast(July) and Salwick Scorcher (July) I am running Lancaster (September), Chester (October) and one more still to be identified to finish the series.
I have set a fundraising target of £1000 for the year, so please help by sponsoring me.
Lancashire Wildlife Trust undertakes vital work for the good of our environment, including a great scheme to help the emotional health and wellbeing of young people through working together in the outdoors called My Place. I hope to raise awareness of the benefits of Ecotherapy, and access to this fantastic service through my fundraising efforts. I will be posting photos(hopefully interesting ones!)from my training runs every week to keep this effort visible and alive in the minds of potential sponsors, as well as those who could benefit from the service or where someone knows a person who might.
Running is also a fantastic work/ life balance and health and wellbeing activity for me. It has helped me manage manage my personal resilience and type 2 diabetes effectively. I started running about 6 years ago, initially doing about a mile and a half of walk/jog/walk, so its modest steps if you've never done anything like this before. I also think it helps achieve a better personal balance where the primary activity in one's job is thinking and talking!
One of my favourite quotes about leadership is that its about "combining what I do with who I am", and If I can inspire anyone else to take up running or some other wellbeing activity then that too would be great, so for me its also about how I can use my senior role in Lancashire Care NHS Trust to lead by example in a way that promotes wellbeing.
