Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
For 2013 I've put together the different charities that I am supporting on this one page.
Here are the charities I am supporting throughout the year while running 30+ Marathons.
My husband suffered a stroke in August 2013, so I have added Colchester Stroke Unit to my charities due to the great care they provided whilst in hospital and also the continuing after care with home visits.
MacMillan were there for my mother and family when she was fighting breast cancer up until she passed away 3 years ago, she was only 63. and fought for over 10 years against cancer.
EACH, East Anglia's Children's Hospices, provides a wonderful service for my local area and helps life-threatened children and their families.
Altogether throughout the year I will run around 30 marathons, including Malta, London, Milton Keynes, Berlin and York.
All costs are covered by me, no Gold Bond or charity places, all expenses come from my own pocket, so every penny donated goes to the charities.
