My Story

I've chosen to support Women in Sport because millions of women and girls are missing out on the benefits of sport.

Women in Sport is the leading UK charity working to transform sport for the benefit of every woman and girl. They campaign for more women to be in sports leadership and coaching roles, run public awareness campaigns, and programmes to help women and girls get into sport.

Running the London Marathon feels like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It's exciting and a bit daunting, as I've never taken part in such a large event. I may never get to run it again so I'd love it if you would sponsor me and help more girls and women to enjoy the health, wellbeing and self-confidence that taking part in sport can give them.
