THE STORY:


Dear friends and family,

After several years of weak excuses I am excited to be making my first attempt at running the Marathon, in New York City on 5th November. I am running to raise $3,500 for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). So far training is going well. After 350 miles, I've only seen one specialist doctor, had 10 physio sessions, one MRI scan and 4 ice baths. Any sponsorship you can give will help spur on my creaky legs to the end! 

UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children across 190 countries and territories.  Last year they helped treat more than 3.1 million children for severe acute malnutrition. The are currently on the ground in Houston, Myanmar, Mexico and Puerto Rico (to name a few) providing life-saving food, shelter, medicine and schooling. Sadly, the Trump Administration’s FY 2018 budget proposal, for the first time in memory, does not include a U.S. contribution to UNICEF. Our support is more important than ever to help them achieve their mission.
