My story

On 1st October 2004, our son Louis died, aged one day. This year on 2nd October, I will be running The London Marathon to mark his 18th birthday, and in memory of another big influence in my life, dad, who died 3 years ago with dementia. It is a chance to raise money for 2 charities, Sands and Dementia UK.

Sands was there to support us when Louis died and has given us a way to build a legacy for him and make his life matter. Sands is committed to reduce the number of babies dying each day through Stillbirth and Neonatal death, and continues to provide support for anyone affected by the death of a baby.

When dad developed dementia, there was little support in Somerset, and we did not know of the care available from Admiral Nurses, funded by Dementia UK. We wish we had! This is a chance to raise funds for them in memory of dad, so more families can receive help as they care for a family member with dementia.

Anything you are able to give will be hugely appreciated. It is awhile since I last ran the London Marathon, but I can’t think of a better reason to get out there and train and raise funds this year, than an 18th birthday and to remember a great dad.

Thank you for reading
