Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am a Ukrainian in Britain, and started running actively a year and a half ago, becoming a member of a local sports club. I have loved running since childhood, it always supported me mentally, but I never ran more than few kilometers a week or even a month. Now I have raised the bar significantly and I'm trying to overcome both physical and mental barriers to achieve better results.

I am taking on the challenge of running the London Landmarks Half Marathon to raise money for Live Music Now. This is an awesome charity brings the joy of live music to care homes, schools, hospitals, hospices and community settings across the UK.

I completed my first half marathon, Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon, one year ago in 02:33. This I’ll be running with my friend from our sports club and she will obviously make me do it faster.

Although this is not the only expected benefit of this race - I hope it will be a wonderful event among like-minded people, as well as an opportunity to enjoy the views of London.

Music can be called an international language that speaks directly to everyone's feelings. There are so many positive benefits to being involved in live music, but not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to it, so I'm fundraising to make sure this work can continue to support others.

Running and music remain vital components of mental health and moral resilience, and your donations will really support and motivate me to achieve my goal.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity, so it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
