Megan runs the London Marathon
This year, in April, I will be running the London Marathon for a wonderful charity called Streetdoctors. Streetdoctors provide young people around the country with knowledge and confidence about how to save lives. The rate of violence on our streets is increasing, the current cost to the NHS is £2.9 billion with a wider cost to society of £30 billion. But it it not just about money, lives of victims, their friends and families are ruined by this epidemic and being a medical student in East London this is what is most apparent.
Money you give to sponsor me will help fund passionate volunteers, myself included, to go into the communities and educate young people. In our sessions we teach how to manage someone who is bleeding or has collapsed but also about the permanence of injury and how there is no safe place to stab.
This place on the marathon was awarded to me through my university Raising and Giving scheme.
I am incredibly nervous and excited about this challenge and any donations are greatly appreciated.
