The London Marathon
I applied to run the London Marathon originally to set myself a challenge and take part in what I believe is the best day of the year in the city I grew up in. I received a spot on the ballot and so whether or not to run for a charity was up to me.
‘Something To Look Forward To’ is a charity run by a close friend of mine. The work that she and her mum do for those suffering and their families is not only award winning but truly inspirational. Of course we must focus on prevention of and cures for cancer, but too many times, sadly that is not an option. In those moments it is time with family that is most powerful and provides more support, love and positivity than anything else. It was a no brainier for me to use my opportunity to support such amazing work and help a few more families get that time together.
