Corner To Corner - Running Across America
After growing up in a small English village, I now find myself working in a kitchen in the beautiful Austrian Alps. The last 27 years have been an adventure, one that was certainly full of ups and downs. After living the party lifestyle in Greece for years I found that I was not in the place that I wanted to be. With my continuous accidents and hospital trips I began to realise that it was time to start looking after myself. 2010 was the start of a long journey that has lead me to the person that I am today.
Running Across America
Why run across America?
Because why not? On a personal level, it is something that you hear about people doing, something crazy, yet so amazing you think to yourself “I could never do that!”. I have always had the thought about running across America, but it was always something in the back of my mind, mainly because I kept on telling myself “That’s a stupid idea” and “You would never make it”, which is probably true but you never know unless you try!
I have been fundraising for Spinal Research for the last 3 years and so far raised over £5,000 to help fund research into curing paralysis. The more I have worked with Spinal Research, the more I learn about the research that they are funding and the breakthroughs that they are making. I feel that I want to do as much as I can to raise awareness for a fantastic cause and to really make a difference. This is a charity which I truly believe in, otherwise I wouldn’t be preparing for a 7 month run across a continent!
