My story

A couple of years ago I went to watch a friend run the London Marathon and was blown away - seeing thousands of people supporting their friends and family, who were raising money for incredible charities and often in memory of a loved one inspired me to do so myself. I will be running it this year for The Lord's Taverners.

Sport has played a huge part of my life - from keeping mentally and physically fit, to meeting lifelong mates. To be able to take part in sport is something many of us take for granted.

The Lord's Taverners are an amazing charity, that give disadvantaged and disabled children the opportunity to take part in sport:

4.1 million children currently live in poverty – 30% of children in the UK, or 9 children in every class of 30.

Children who live in poverty are 4 times more likely to develop a mental health problem by age 11.

Disability and poverty are strongly connected. 38% of children in families where someone is disabled live in poverty.

45% of children from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds live in poverty compared to 30% of all children.

In the UK only 18% of young people living with disabilities, and fewer girls than boys, regularly take part in sport, partly due to a lack of opportunity.

Active young people are happier, more resilient and more trusting.

Girls are less likely to be active than boys, and Asian children are much less confident about taking part in activity than children from other ethnic groups.

The money that I raise will help improve the health, mental wellbeing and future prospects for all those who are affected by the work The Lord's Taverners carry out.
