When I was 6 years old I opened the door to what I thought was my daddy coming in from work...It was the Police...they had come to tell us my daddy had been killed on his way home from work in a car accident. Our world was turned upside down. I never got to say goodbye to him. 40 years later I still have unresolved grief. By raising awareness about childhood bereavement and the impact of unresolved grief in adulthood I am hoping to find some healing for myself and benefit others who are unfortunate to experience similar tragic life events.

Event details

2019 Virgin Money London Marathon

A record number of 414, 168 runners applied to take part in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon and I am one of the lucky applicants who will be running the race on Sunday 28th April 2019!!
I have never run a marathon...nor even a half marathon so this is a huge personal challenge for me.
Please help motivate me by helping me raise some cash for my charity of choice.."Holding on Letting Go." A Kent based charity that helps children cope with the death of someone close to them.
