This year I have taken on the challenge of running/walking 1000 miles for Stand by Me. I thought this would be easy having trained for the marathon in 2014, it has however been pretty testing at times particularly in Northern Ireland’s lovely weather conditions!!
More often however I have enjoyed getting my trainers on and getting out in the fresh air! I have run in all seasons including the snow and have managed to pound the streets everywhere I have been including Boston and New York! It’s been great to make exercise part my everyday but even better knowing that I am doing it for such a great cause.
Stand by Me rescue children in some of the most awful situations giving them the opportunity to fulfill their potential just like every child should be enabled to do. Children are alive today because of the work of Stand by Me. Stand by Me work in a number of countries including Ethiopia and India where I have travelled to myself.
