I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of ABF The Soldiers' Charity and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in TCS London Marathon 2022. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'donate' button. The more people that know about ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
LONDON MARATHON 2022
On 2nd October, I am running the 2022 London Marathon for The Soldiers Charity!
As most of my Facebook friends will know, my dad is a serving officer in the Armed Forces and has been since he was 16! Therefore, army life is all me and my family have ever known.
If you tried to describe army life to someone outside of this world, it would be quite hard to understand…Moving house every 2 years (I have just moved into our 14th home!) or having a parent go away for 6 months with little to no contact. When I was younger, FaceTime was not a thing! Contact consisted of letters called “Blueys” (if you know, you know 😂). I had tanks driving round the outside of my playground in Primary; it was only until I moved back to the U.K. I realised this wasn’t normal!
These are all quite crazy things to live with that are personal to me but they don’t even touch the surface on half of the serious impacts of being in the military world. These impacts can be psychological, physical, financial and everything in between.
This is why The Soldiers Charity is so important. Their vision is “All serving and former soldiers and their dependants should have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence and dignity.”
I am running to raise money for any serving or retired solider and their family, but also for my dad, (who I am forever in awe of), my uncles, my grandads and all the great people whos path has crossed with mine and my families through the Army.
I would be so grateful if you please donate anything you can to support me, but any words of encouragement or Kudos on Strava will also go a long way!
Thank you to my Sponsors
