About

I ran 20 miles yesterday and have been getting up at 6am 3 days a week for 3 and half months to run various distances - showing off? Yes I am, but hopefully to encourage you to contribute to the cause for which I am doing this.

I am running the Liverpool marathon on 26 May for On Road Media. On Road was set up by my good friend Nathalie to shine a light on social issues and experiences by facilitating conversations between the media and people with lived experience of issues from across the UK. Incredibly important, exciting and radical work encouraging us to write and read stories that genuinely give us new perspectives on issues such as sexual violence, transgender communities, poverty and migration.

Event details

Amy runs the Liverpool Marathon for On Road Media

The On Road team supports and trains people with personal experience of an issue to understand how to get their message across in a strategic and safe way.

The award-winning charity work with journalists, scriptwriters and senior media professionals, providing informal yet carefully curated opportunities for them to connect on an emotional level with a diverse group of people who have first hand experience of the issue.

What does this do? It means we are now hearing and reading about certain groups in a way that is less sensationalised and more authentic, and not just telling stories about people like they are the 'other'. On Road have literally transformed the way we now read about the trans community - you will have noticed this for example if you're a soap fan - including trans storylines on EastEnders, Hollyoaks etc.

All this is done by four unbelievably brilliant women who work tirelessly running this small charity achieving enormous impact. I am so proud to be a board member and would really love it if you helped me to raise some well-deserved funds for them to continue to do this important work.
