In memory of Stephen and Michael

I will be running the Standard Chartered Half Marathon (13.2 miles) in February in aid of helping my family to raise money for the costs of 2 funerals.

Tragically my Uncle Ste and my Cousin Michael have passed away unexpectedly within weeks of each other. Its been a huge shock and it's so difficult to come to terms with.  Despite the great help provided from the local authority with funeral costs, it is still not enough for us to pay for the two funerals. Whilst we are all doing what we can, we do not have any savings as a family and so I have made a decision not to fly back to be with family at this difficult time and instead donate money that I would have spent on a flight and have decided to run the Standard Chartered half marathon in February in aid of trying to raise money to help towards the costs. 
We all really appreciate your support and kindness to help us at this difficult time, even the smallest donations will make the biggest difference to us ♥
