Double Half Marathon #PrayforCharlie

£1,230 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 38 people in 13 days
I am taking on this challenge of running two half marathons to support one of my close friends Charlie Crosby.
Please see below...

On Thursday 6th June, Charlie collapsed and was rushed to Barnet hospital by ambulance where they did a CT scan and found a bleed on his brain. They put him in an induced coma and rushed him to London Neurological Hospital where he has sent straight down for emergency surgery.

After 7 hours of surgery Charlie is now stable and slowly being brought out of the induced coma.
He had an AVM which ruptured deep in the left side of the brain. This is a condition that you are born with and you will not even know until this happens. It can happen to anyone of us at any time.
The staff have told us that Charlie is a real fighter and we are so proud of him. He is young and strong which will be in his favour but we still do not know how much damage has been done.

It breaks my heart to tell you all that we now know that he is currently paralyzed in the right side of his body, and we have been told that the hemorrhage occurred in the part of the brain that controls understanding and speech and this certain to be damaged.

I am hoping that we can raise money for Charlie, Lee and Carole at this difficult time. This might be for travel, accommodation, private rehabilitation or whatever Charlie and his family may need and want to put the money towards.

I have signed up to run two half marathons:
Sunday 11th August at Dorney Lake
Sunday 29th September at Windsor 

I have known Charlie for just over 10 years now, through meeting him at the European Father and Son Golf Championships, where our families have become very close. I am doing this to support Charlie and his family because all they have ever shown me is love and support.  Charlie is one of the most kind and funniest people I know and we would all love to have him back in our lives making us laugh and back to his smiling self. 

Hope you can help raise money. #PrayForCharlie
