Nick's Great North Run
I am running the Great North Run this year to raise money for Share a Star. They are a fantastic organisation who have helped someone dear to me.
Raising money for
Share A Star
Donations accepted until 25-10-2015
My best friend Scott has a wonderful daughter Isla who unfortunately has been diagnosed with a very rare bowel disease. Isla's bowel is so badly inflamed that it has caused Intestinal failure and pseudo obstruction and as a result is unable to eat or drink. Isla feeds TPN intravenously through this line for 14 hours per day. Share a Star is a newly registered charity, which helps severely unwell children and teenagers under the age of 21. Their aim is to send a positive message of hope and to make each youngster feel special by creating a special holding star. Each star is handmade and completely unique, featuring the youngster’s favourite things. Isla has been fortunate enough to receive help from Share a Star and because of this I wanted to give something back to them as a thank and so that they can continue to help others in the future.[url=http://shareastar.org/]http://shareastar.org/[/url]
Great North Run 2015
Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
