London Marathon 2025

Running for my mum

I am so happy that I have a place in the London marathon. 

unfortunately I lost my mum to COPD, this happened rather suddenly. My world shattered and not a day goes by when I don't think of her.

This will be my first marathon, and to be honest, Thave never ran anything further than 5KM before. It's going to be tough, but raising money for a charity that is so close to my heart and can help families not have to go through what I did is worth every step.

Every minute, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a lung condition. I want to make a difference. I'm running the London Marathon 2025 for Asthma + Lung UK, the only UK charity that fights for everyone’s right to breathe. Every pound I'm able to raise will take us a step closer to a world where everyone has healthy lungs.

Just £22 allows one of Asthma + Lung UK's nurses to answer a call on the Helpline, offering potentially lifesaving advice. I'd be very grateful for any donations you could make!

My mum passed away in 2017 from COPD. This charity was amazing and helped us through some difficult times.
