I'm a Music Teacher in London and I love running and have run several half-marathons but never a full marathon. I've always dreamt of being able to do the London Marathon. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to combine my love of running with my passion for seeing the lives of children, who don't have access to the same opportunities that we do here in the UK, transformed.

My wife and I have been long-term supporters of the work of Compassion, we have sponsored multiple children over the past 12 years and continue to do so. Receiving letters from the children that show their journey growing up into young adults and seeing the new life opportunities that they now have due to the work of Compassion is incredible to be a first hand witness to.

No matter how small your donation Compassion will be hugely grateful for your support that will allow them to continue the amazing work that they do. Thank you so much!
