Sarah's London Marathon 2019

192% Raised

23 years ago the world changed forever.. Nicola, a daughter, sister & one of my best friends sadly passed away. She was beautiful, so popular, funny, warm & caring. We had so much fun growing up & I miss her very much. From that day I said to myself that I would try and live my life to the fullest because Nicola was no longer able to...

Running the Marathon was always on my ‘list’ but when I entered the ballot this year I never really thought I would get in, but what happened? I got in first time.

I feel really lucky to be given this opportunity & I wanted to run for a charity that meant a lot to me. After some research I found a local charity called Solve it. This was set up in 1988 by a Mum who lost her son in the same way as Nicola. The charity works to educate people about the consequences of NPS (former legal highs) & solvent abuse.

If you would consider sponsoring me, myself & the charity will really appreciate it xx
