This year marks 10 years since I had life-changing surgery on my spine to correct severe scoliosis.
As a result of the Coronavirus, the Manchester Marathon has been postponed, although I completed all the training including a 20 mile run just before lockdown!
My Machu Picchu trek WILL be going ahead, whether this is October or at a later date.
I STILL NEED YOUR HELP!
For the past few weeks I have been trying to think about what I can do to fundraise from home, that doesn’t break the government rules or put my health at risk.
Then, I came across the 2.6 challenge which has been launched to save the UK’s charities!
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on smaller charities, like the Scoliosis Campaign Fund, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.
To support this challenge and raise funds for the Scoliosis Campaign Fund, I will be running 2.6 miles every day for 26 days, starting on the 26th April.
Please sponsor me – every penny counts and it helps the Scoliosis Campaign Fund to keep going at a time when people need them the most.
I had scoliosis surgery in 2010 and blog about my experiences living with scoliosis. My aim is to raise awareness of scoliosis and help and inspire others with the condition.
