“My brother’s condition is severe and although it is regularly monitored, he will need surgery before he turns 40. As a big sister you always feel it’s your job to fix things for your younger siblings, but I can’t fix this for him, so I’m doing the next best thing and raising money to support the work of those who can. That’s why I’m running the London Marathon for Cardiomyopathy UK.”
Many of those who take on marathons for Cardiomyopathy UK have a connection to cardiomyopathy. We have a policy in place to ensure that anyone undertaking a half marathon through a charity place with us is able to do so safely. To read our policy on fundraising safely, click here.
