The London Marathon 2019 will be my first marathon - many of you will know that I spend most of my time outside of my work for PwC in, on or under the water, so running 42.195km on land makes for a big change to what I'm used to. This will be a massive challenge!
I am delighted to be running the London Maration 2019 in support of the PwC Foundation and, more specifically, one of its charity partners, UK Youth, a national youth charity for which I am very privileged to be a Trustee.
I am very proud of and passionate about UK Youth's work in supporting young people across the country to build bright futures. From developing young people of all backgrounds at the Avon Tyrell Outdoor Centre in the New Forest, to providing a national voice for young people and the youth sector to influence policy and unlock funding, to designing and delivering national programmes for young people (including around financial literacy, digital skills and employability) through a broad network of local youth clubs (and much, much more!), this is a fantastic cause and I have seen first hand the impact of the charity's work in changing the lives of young people.
And it gets even better ...
This first marathon will be particularly special for me, as I will be running it with my dad, who will be flying over to London from Hong Kong.
Running is his passion and I was very proud to support him at the finish line at last year's London Marathon, where he received his Abbott World Marathon Majors medal! This was achieved through completing all six major marathons around the world (Tokyo, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, New York and London). His journey has been inspirational for me - you can read about it here as it was covered in Hong Kong's South China Morning Post: https://www.scmp.com/sport/outdoor/health-fitness/article/2128491/run-fatboy-run-how-hongkonger-shed-27kg-his-worldwide-marathon-quest
