Event Description

Hi Thanks for visiting my page ,

I am running,walking and limping around the 26.2 miles of The London Marathon course to help raise money for my chosen Charity Children With Cancer UK.

Can I run ? yes but not 26.2 miles- Am I young and fit ? No and relatively,- Am I determined - you bet !Tongue out

I have personal experience of how this disease destroys lives and wrecks families I also know that chilhood cancers kill one in four children in the UK every day and I would like to help change this statistic in any way I can.

I have been dragging my ancient body out running and jogging and have been hitting the Gym 6 times a week to try to get myself in shape-I have been a dribbling soggy mess and have burst into tears - I am told to visualise the finish line when this happens- I am visualising but it is a very very long way and there is a lot more hard work to be done on my part between now and Sunday 23rd April.

If you can help me in terms of making any sort of donation I can promise you that out of every £1 donated 84pence will be used by Children With Cancer UK to research the causes of childhood cancers and leukaemia and help to add to the list of many successful treatments already being used following research.

It is by no means doom and gloom if childhood cancers are treated early there is every chance that the younster will be completely cured and go on to lead a healthy life.

Please look out for me - I will be the one at the back in Mr Men and Little Miss leggings and Running Vest with my name on -probably enjoying the whole day experience - no world records- no personal best- for me it is about raising as much money as I can and general survival.!
