Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
2017 is my 32nd year undertaking Wildlife Rescue & Conservation work. I founded East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) in 1996 and it has become my life and part of my family.
My health has not been brilliant over the past 10 years (I'm now 45 years old!) gaining weight, high blood pressure as well as stress and illness. Several times I have been warned about my health by doctor.
In 2015 I hit 110kg (just over 17 stone). Since March 2016 I have been actively trying to improve my health. So I started jogging. The first time I went out for a run it took me over 16 minutes to run and walk just 1 mile. Over the past year I have been building up my fitness and reducing my weight. I am now 89kg (14 stone). On 30th January I run (with a short amount of walking) 10 miles for the first time since the 1980s.
My colleague and best friend Chris has paid for me to enter and challenged me to complete the Eastbourne Half Marathon with him on 5th March almost exactly 1 year since I started running.
If I don't get fit, I can't be there to help WRAS and the thousands of wild animals and birds which WRAS helps. I need your support to encourage me on and get me to the finishing line.
So please sponsor me and help both me and my fitness as well as the animals of Sussex.
