Neil Higson. 34 years old.
The #13in13 challenge started in October 2017 at Dublin Marathon, and is now close towards the end. With 12 marathons now completed, including the Ironman UK, I have just one more to go on the 14th October 2018 - The Great Yorkshire Marathon in York.
I aim to raise as much as possible for the charity!
The charity was formed in the memory of, Samantha Sykes who tragically died, at 18 years old, with her friend who was “looked after” by the local authority. Sami was murdered because of the support she selflessly gave to two young people, who were in need of love, protection and guidance and who would have benefited from the work of this charity. Our promise to Sami is that we will bring together our communities, to support like minded people, who believe, as we do, that ALL children deserve an equal chance in life, no matter what their circumstances. With the help of not-for-profit organisations, educational establishments and the local community, we aim to support these young people through education, mentoring and pastoral care.
