This is a photo of me at the end of my first 10km run last year-‘Beat the Tide’ And I only just beat it!
I took up running about a year ago so am very new to this malarky but have run 3, 10km events and a cross country run called the Brutal 10 so far! One of which was the Chestnut Tree House 10km where I managed to raise £400 for the charity with the support and generosity of my friends and family!
It had been my goal this year to better the times I achieved last year, hopefully with my first ever half marathon in October!
When I heard the news from Georgina of Micheles’ most recent diagnosis and knowing how bravely the family have endured this past year, I really felt I wanted to do something to help raise the funds needed for the vital treatment Michele needs.
So why not run for a reason! I know the bravery and humility of the Ammolla family will be what drags me out of bed at 5am on cold, wet mornings to train! The funds I hope to raise for this wonderful cause will be the inspiration to push through! What’s a few blisters in comparison to making this wonderful family’s lives just a little bit brighter?
My first run is The Bluebell 10km on the 23rd April. Then Beat the Tide 10km in July, followed by The Chestnut Tree 10km and the Arundel 10km in August and September. Finishing with the Chichester Half Marathon on 8th of October!
Please help and give what you can for this beautiful family
