About

Dear friends,

On March 17, 2024, I'll be taking on the New York Half Marathon, my second official half marathon, apart from my training runs. If you had asked me six years ago, I wouldn't have believed I could even complete a 5k, let alone a half marathon.

Running has brought an indescribable change to my life, helping me discover myself in the past few years. My journey into running began with the support of Sporting Family Change, led by the incredible Hayley, Jimmy, and Serena. They helped me rediscover the joy of exercise and laughter.

I ran my first half marathon in March 2020, a time when completing such a feat was challenging due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The circumstances didn't allow for proper celebration, but with the help of my husband, Ant, and my friend Rosy, who has been by my side since the pandemic, I now feel ready to take on another half marathon.

Sporting Family Change continues to work wonders by helping others find themselves through exercise and laughter. I want to do everything I can to raise funds to support individuals in the same position I once was, and to help SFC transform lives repeatedly.

Running has liberated me from being a victim of my health and past traumas. It has empowered me to acknowledge my struggles with mental health during my teens and recognize that I can overcome life's challenges. With the support of my loved ones and my faith, I've learned that I don't have to remain stuck in the past. By prioritizing my well-being, I'm finally on a path towards happiness and a fulfilling life.

Join me in supporting Sporting Family Change as they continue to make a positive impact on lives through exercise, laughter, and self-discovery. Together, we can help others find their path to happiness and resilience.

Thank you for your support,

Nats

Ps thankfully Ant will be by my side running with me!!
