Mothers United

Like you, I have seen the images of mothers and mothers-to-be trying to escape from the dangers currently in Ukraine, seeking shelter and refuge for their families.  These images have been imprinted on my mind. I cannot escape the horror they must be going through. Each day I feel helpless watching the news and I desperately want to do something to let those mothers know that I stand united with them.
These women are facing their (our) worst fears for their children. The mental and physical challenges they must be enduring… it is, for me, unimaginable. My unwavering desire to help is borne from wanting nothing else but to raise my own family in a peaceful and safe environment. 

I am looking to raise funds for UNICEF, who are doing an enormous amount of relief work in Ukraine and surrounding countries. Keeping children safe is their primary aim.  Please click on the link to find out more about their efforts.

I’m not a frequent runner, not by a long stretch, but I’m going to challenge myself to a physical and mental undertaking.

 Starting Friday 25th March 6pm I am going to run 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours (4x4x48 challenge). This challenge will culminate on Mother’s Day - Sunday 27th. You can follow my runs on Strava -  

Let us share the love and kindness on Mother’s Day and unite with all mothers on this day.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. Together we can make a difference.
