Raising funds for Stroke Association. Three members of my family have suffered strokes.
Shortly after retiring, my Great-Uncle suffered a stroke. He spent the next 7 years in a nursing home unable to walk or communicate prior to his death in 2004.
In 2014, my father in law, again in the early days of his retirement suffered a severe stroke leaving him hospitalised for several months initially unable to walk and without the use of his right arm. He has since returned home and after a period of time has managed to start driving again which is a great achievement.
In late 2014 my Nan suffered a massive stroke leaving her in a coma which sadly she never came out of and passed away 2 weeks later.
The first race out of 12 and my first race for over 5 years.
I will be conducting a raffle / auction to increase donations towards my ambitious target of £20,000.
My wife and I will be joining 20,000 others and Ireland's perfect running conditions in this city centre marathon. Wish us luck!
