As some of you may know, I recently suffered a brain injury which has significantly impacted my life. In April 2022, I experienced a traumatic brain injury. I spent nearly three weeks in an ICU fighting for my life and was told it is a miracle that I am alive.

I have been lucky enough to get involved with the charity Headway Surrey through my master's course at City University, London as a student Speech and Language Therapist. It's a local charity for me in Surrey which does an incredible job of providing support to people with acquired and traumatic brain injury and their families. I have decided to (attempt!) to run the London Marathon on 21st April 2024 in aid of this important charity.

The London Marathon has become an annual, inspiring and colourful fixture in the world’s sporting calendar since the inaugural race on 29 March 1981: a celebration of fun, fundraising and fancy dress.

Over the years more than a million people have completed the 26.2-mile course – which runs from Blackheath to The Mall, with a spectacular finish in front of Buckingham Palace, showcasing the very best that the capital city has to offer.

What’s more, these participants have raised over a billion pounds for charity and there have been countless amazing tales of human achievement throughout the event’s history – living up to its aim of helping participants ‘to have fun, and provide some happiness and sense of achievement in a troubled world’.

Welcome to my fundraising page dedicated to raising funds for the incredible charity Headway – Surrey. Headway supports individuals and families affected by brain injuries. My brother Harry and I have taken up the exciting challenge of participating in the prestigious London Marathon 2024 to make a difference in the lives of those affected by brain injuries. Please join us on this incredible journey and help us reach our fundraising goal!

I want to start this with a disclaimer of sorts, as the start is a lot of my personal story. I’m running the London Marathon 2024 for Headway Surrey because they have been a vital service and responsible for giving me the skills and tools as part of my recovery.

As is the case for so many charities following Covid and the cost of living crisis, funds for Headway Surrey are tight, and as a small local charity every penny makes a huge difference, so that they can provide the vital support for adults with acquired brain injuries.
