Fundraising - Jess's one and only marathon!
Total raised: £315
I wanted to set myself a target to take part in my one and only marathon before I complete my nursing training and my back and knees give way! Brighton trail marathon seemed ideal, beautiful scenery, lovely route...I should have really paid more attention to the amount of hills involved before I signed up. But it's too late now and it just adds to the scale of the challenge!
I wanted to find a worthwhile cause and try to raise a decent amount of money to give me momentum to get the training done and actually make a difference at the same time. Aldingbourne Trust was suggested to me by a good friend and what an amazing place it is - supporting and encouraging people with learning disabilities to reach their full potential in a bespoke environment - I hear theres even a slide in the foyer.
Please do have a look at their website, and please do consider sponsoring me in my mad quest to make the most of my youth (or whats left of it!)
