My Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. 

I am delighted to be given the opportunity to run the London Marathon. The prospect of training for it is rather daunting, but I think I will find it very exhilarating and the most memorable of experiences. As a totally blind person, I will be heavily reliant on my sighted guide runner to see us through to the finishing line.

I am running for the Vision Foundation to raise much needed money for all their various projects which improve the lives of people with sight loss. These projects support a wide range of blind and partially sighted people, whether that be a child in education; a young adult who needs a helping hand on the career ladder; or an isolated older person with cookery, Zumba or yoga classes. So, all in all, the Vision Foundation transforms lives by working in partnership with others to deliver projects which, inform, empower and include.

By donating you will not only be supporting me in my London Marathon challenge, but you will also be making a direct and positive impact on many lives. Thank you!
