Hi All

I am running this because I was asked by my cousin Shaun Leavy for some support. I will also be using this run to remember my cousin Mark Curtis the first family member of my generation to sadly pass away.

I run once a year in his memory and give my medal to his mum to let her know we are all thinking about "Sparky". His Mum my Aunty Kate is also caring for her husband who has Alzheimer's and as a family we can see first-hand how challenging caring is for the carer

This will be the first time I have run for a charity I thought this would not only be my run for Mark but to recognise how tirelessly my Aunt Kate looks after William her husband.

My Mum Eileen was a carer all of her life and having listened to her story’s not only about the person she was caring for, but the family members having to care for a loved one and how it impacted on many of them.So this run has to be done ;-)

This will be my first and only charity run so any support would be greatfully received ......Much love and thanks in advance for your support xx
