Fundraiser 2019= 3x Ultra Marathons, 3x Marathons

After an altercation with an everyday item, it decided to self destruct itself and throw a piece of plastic into my eye. I thought I might lose my sight. I was swiftly taken to Boston Pilgrim Hospital. Several visits later I was discharged. I was very lucky. Although there is still a bit of microscopic debris in there, that is all. The team at the Royle Eye Clinic at the Pilgrim were fantastic. The work was precise and no question from me was considered too stupid!! They certainly did save the sight in my eye. This is why this year I am going to raise as much as I can to split between the Royle Eye Clinic at Boston Pilgrim for vital equipment so they can continue to give the best help to those that could be affected in a split second and the local Guide Dogs to help train future eyes and ears for those less fortunate who lose their sight through accident or disease.
2019 will see me taking on my biggest running challenges. Three Marathons, Three Ultra Marathons. I'll do the hard work, I just need your support to help me reach my target. Please support me if you can and if you can share amongst anyone who you think would sponsor me I'd be very grateful.
My target events for this year are
1] Belvoir Challenge 26 mile Trail.
2] Boston UK Marathon
3] Longhorn Ultra.
4] Grimesthorpe Trail Marathon
5] Sublime 24 HR Ultra
6) Equinox 24HR Ultra

Thanks for reading my story.
