London Marathon – Running for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice

On 22nd April I will be running the Virgin London Marathon. I last ran this in 2007, and I will never forget turning the corner onto the Mall, digging deep for a sprint finish (of sorts), looking up and immediately seeing my wonderful wife cheering from the grandstand.

5 years later and she’ll be there with me again, only this time running alongside me. This will be her first marathon.

We have decided to raise money for Noah’s Ark Hospice, a Children’s Hospice based in Barnet.

“Noah’s Ark is an expanding children’s hospice service, seeking to serve an estimated 350 life-limited or life-threatened children or young people, and their families, living within the communities of Enfield, Barnet, Camden, Haringey and Islington.

Our aim is to support these families, often by working in partnership with other agencies, delivering flexible services that encompass the whole family – enabling them to live positive lives and face the future with hope, following the death of their child. These services range from practical and emotional support, ultimately through to end-of-life and bereavement care.”

Here is a short video of their work.
