Join me in supporting Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals as I run the Barcelona Marathon on March 10, 2024, with only 64 days to prepare.

I am reaching out to share a story of resilience, hope, and determination. In 2022, our lives took an unexpected turn when my beloved mum was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer.

After a challenging journey of treatment, surgery, and unwavering determination, my mum completed her planned treatment in the summer of 2023 and we were told that the treatment was successful. Throughout this difficult period the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals were outstanding in their speed of action, attention to care and support.

To celebrate this win and show some love to Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, I've decided to take on this stupid task of trying to prepare my body to run in the Barcelona Marathon on the 10th March, 2024. Which leaves me 64 days to prepare. Maybe the New Year, New Me has gone too far this time!

It's not just about covering 42 kilometres; it's about turning miles into milestones and supporting an incredible team who supported my Mum through an incredible stressful time.

Here’s how you can support me on my 64 day journey:

UNO - Donate: Every little bit counts! Head over to my JustGiving page (link below) and throw in whatever you can. Let's make sure Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals keeps doing their amazing work.


DOS - Spread the Word: Share my story through your own social media channels. Let's get the word out and inspire others to jump on this feel-good train.

TRES - Virtual Cheers: Drop some good vibes on my JustGiving or LinkedIn page. I'll carry them with me through those 42 kilometers.

This marathon is more than just a run; it's a chance to turn a tough chapter into a story of triumph. Let's team up, support the NHS but, especially Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals, and make sure no one faces this battle alone. Ready, set, go! 🏃‍♂️💙
