Prince of Wales half marathon

To help the Prince of Wales Hospice continue to provide amazing care to those who need it.

About Prince of Wales half marathon

In March this year I did my first park run. I'd already signed up to the 10 weeks to 10k training, and the pre-requisite was we could comfortably run 5k. After doing my first 5k at park run I wouldn't have described it as comfortable! Anyway, I put on my trainers and went out on my first run with Grantham Running Club and the ever so patient run leaders. My aim was to be able to run 10k. Never did I think I'd want to run a half marathon and never did I think I'd have the commitment to do so, or the ability. Two months in I was hit with the running bug. It's the best thing I've done, being part of a running club is something I thought I'd never be. I've had injuries (possibly brought on by running in unsuitable trainers and trying to run too far too soon). That aside I've continued, after buying some very nice trainers and lots of visits to the physiotherapist and the occasional sports massage! I'm not fast and go a very fetching shade of red! On the 1st October I will be running my first half marathon. So I'm asking for you to sponsor me. I have chosen to run for The Prince of Wales Hospice, as they cared for my uncle in his last few weeks of life after losing his battle to cancer. The service they provide is FREE to patients. But it costs £7000 a day to run the hospice - some funds they do get but a huge amount has to be found through fundraising. I hope that by reading this you might be able to help me to reach my goal of £300 which pays for a room for a day, to help them provide that invaluable care and comfort in the darkest hour. I won't be first over the line, and I might walk a bit when there's no camera around - but I will be running with my heart, in the hope that it will help make a difference to someone and their family at a an awful time. Thanks for reading and dig deep ❤️ Anything you can give will help.
