In September 2012 many of you generously sponsored me in the 'The Great North Run'. Due to the success of the previous run I've managed to secure a place in the London Marathon. Again I'm running for my amazing daughter Carla and assisting the DSA in raising money to help fund research into Down’s Syndrome. Its the only UK registered agency helping people with DS and families affected by the condition.!
Already this year has been eventful. Carla was admitted into hospital with pneumonia then 2 weeks later she underwent open heart surgery at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Heart conditions are common problems for children with Down's Syndrome but the operation went well and we're hopeful she won't need further operations, and she amazingly returned back to nursery only 3 weeks later. I need some of her fighting spirit!
26 miles is a long way and I’m not going to be breaking any records but I'd love to finish under 4 hours 30 mins. The run keeper app on my phone will transmit to the website where you can track me and give me some live feedback during the race! All nice I hope, I'll send out the details of that nearer the time.
Any donation will help, I really appreciate all your support and thank you.
