When I was 10 years old my mum introduced me and my sister to running we joined City of Hull AC we were active members of the club, mum volunteering on the track and in the tuck shop! We competed all over the country and the seed was sown. Moving on a few years I came to Leeds to start my nursing, I moved to Garforth and I joined Kippax Harriers in 1994. I have loved my running journey and completed a few marathons and I have managed to secure a " Good for Age " place in the London Marathon for 2024. (Last ran London in 1998!)
I was able to tell mum I had secured a place for the London Marathon before she passed away in December 2023. Mum always supported Sunshine and Smiles and was very close to Eleanor they had a special bond. Sunshine and Smiles is a small charity who support children with Down Syndrome and their families in many different ways. For Eleanor it is the social group activities like singing, swimming, parties and being with friends that she loves the most.
I would be so grateful if you can sponsor me for the London Marathon it will be an emotional day running with mum and dad in my thoughts and to raise money for such a great Charity.
Thank you so much
Alison and Eleanor xx
