Claire's words:

In January a friend approached me and asked if I would like to join her in running a half marathon... neither of us being 'runners', but both thinking this would be a great excuse to get fit after all that Christmas turkey we ate last year... I agreed!! Stupid move??? Maybe!

Whilst I have been making every attempt to get into the spirit of training, and I am sure that my utter stubborn-ness will be more than enough to push me to that finish line, I wanted to do something more to give me some personal motivation and raise some money for a charity at the same time; so I have chosen a charity close to me and my mum personally - The Natalie Naylor Trust Fund.


Natalie was a young, vibrant 20 year old who was tragically struck by meningitis with no warning and died very suddenly - it was a massive shock to everyone who knew her, including my mum and me.

I wouldn't say I knew Natalie personally as a young adult, however she was the first friend I ever knew - our mum's met at ante-natal classes and we were born within a few week's of each other - we spent many days playing, learning to talk, crawl and walk etc. Now every year me and mum receive the annual newsletter from the NNTF and read all the stories of the events and fundraising that they have been doing in order to raise monies in Natalie's memory; it is always very touching and emotional - mum often thinks of Natalie when I reach my own milestones, as these are all things that she should have been doing herself. So when the half marathon was offered I thought how touched mum would be if we were reading about my own efforts next year :)

 

It is scary to hear the stories of how meningitis can affect any one of us at any age, and unfortunately not enough of us know how to recognise the early symptoms in order to prevent it ruining so many lives. The charities that the NNTF support help provide emotional support to families affected and also research into the vaccine to stop the spread of the disease.

 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

PLEASE dig deep and donate now! Thank you x
