About

I’m running the 2019 London marathon for TOFS who support people born with 
TRACHEO-OESOPHAGEAL FISTULA (TOF). In layman’s terms it’s when an oesophagus hasn’t formed properly before birth leaving people with eating and breathing difficulties. This happened to my nephew, Leo. His condition was diagnosed very fortunately by an exceptional nurse in Brighton hospital hours after birth. After several operations, a stint in intensive care and a lot of love and care and help from TOFS he’s a very active and happy (read nuts) 4 yr old. I’ve been running for about 3 years and have completed 11 half marathons, it’s about time I upped the challenge and made some money for a fantastic charity to promote and drive awareness of the effects of being born with this conditions which continue throughout a person’s life. Thank you for donating! 

Event details

2019 Virgin London Marathon

On 28th April 2019, I’ll be running 42km, or 26.2 miles in old money, all in one go. It’s called a marathon and I’ve seen it on the telly, some people do it really quickly. I’m doing it in aid of a great charity supporting people born with eating and breathing problems due to their oesophagus not forming properly. This happened to my nephew and this charity has really helped my whole family to understand and deal with his condition. This is my first marathon and I’d really appreciate any small or really HUGE sum you can donate! Thanks very much!
