Chris has raised thousands for charity in recent years by doing both the Great North Run and the London Marathon 2011. She's a star to us!!My future dream is to continue taking part in races and encourage other people to take up the challenge to get fit and raise money for various charities. You only have to look at me to see that I am no athletic! The reason I started running is to raise money for charities because my mum sadly died of cancer and I wanted to feel I was doing something worthwhile to help raise money to beat this awful disease. I hope if people see that I can run these events anyone can. You don't have to been some mega fit athletic just have to have the passion determination and commitment to go out and train for these events. Start off with a small event and work your way up. The sense of satisfaction that you have completed the run is amazing.
