Marathon for Max

This year I've decided to take part in My Marathon My Way to raise vital funds for Sands during this incredibly difficult time.

In these uncertain times, the Sands helpline and online community are vital in keeping bereaved families connected by offering a safe, confidential and compassionate space to talk.

I’ve decided to take on this challenge as Sands is a charity that really played a special part in my family’s lives. 

On April 1st 2001 my Mum gave birth to her first child Max, who was born asleep. This year would have been his 20th birthday. 

Sands are the charity that gave my parents hope and enabled them to share their loss with others who had suffered from a similar experience. 

My target is to complete the 26.2 miles by April 1st. 

Any donations or support will be greatly appreciated ❤️

Week 1✅ Miles: 17

Sunday 21st Mar
Target has been to hit 26.2 miles and I’m now only 9 off that with 10 days left to do it in. That doesn’t mean the running will slow up, I will be doing my absolute most to try and smash that target as much as possible by April 1st!

5.5 miles down...

Tuesday 16th Mar
Two runs down. Target was 26 miles in 17 days but I have a feeling I’m going to absolutely smash that. The support I’ve received has been overwhelming to say the least... 

I’m going to top up the 26 miles as much as possible to really give my all for Sands and everyone that has donated so far and continues to do so. Your support truly does go a long. 💛

P.s. I have been logging my runs over on Strava, I will be collating them every 3/4 days and keeping this page updated to.


My Plan

Monday 15th Mar
The aim is to have all 26 miles completed by April 1st. To mark the event off I will then be doing a longer run on Saturday April 3rd down the seafront. I will keep this page updated with how I am getting on, and where I will be running to and from on that final day. 

Thanks again from me and my family and everyone associated with Sands. The support I’ve received has been amazing 💛
