I would like to give my daughter her moment to shine, she is a real inspiration and uplifting person and she fills all her family and friends with pride. In 2009 she took on the idea of doing something for charity so decided to run the London Marathon 2010 she set off organising fund raisers, huge charity nights, sponsored walks all in aid of Motor Neurone Disease, we knew she was a strong minded individual, full off energy and motivation but when in 10 months we relasied she had raised £8,109.52 we was filled with pride. However 2 weeks before the Marathon sam fractured her back and was forced to pull out, which left her devastated, felt like she had lost her moment after all work all year, but then told usthe satisfaction and the smiles on the faces of the people affected by Motor Neurone Disease was more than any medal and no-one could take that away. Sam picked herself up and went on to raise a further £1,712.50 this year for Parkinsons Disease and with numerous fund raisers in the pipeline sam has said she would like to double what she has raised to date by 2012, she has got people involved and created a humble uplifting presence amongst young people. As well as all the fund raising sam also gives up 2 nights of her week to be care for a lady with learning difficulties and I know if she was asked she would tell people sam is her best friend and she thinks the world of her. Please give my daughter her much deserved chance to shine and encourage other young people.
