I am running the Edinburgh marathon this year to raise money for Strathcarron Hospice.

Strathcarron hospice offer specialist palliative care and support to people living with life-limiting illnesses and conditions. I have always admired the work the hospice do, but recently learned how much extra time and effort the staff put in to ensure that the people they are caring for spend their days in comfort, surrounded by the people they love.

I have never run further than half marathon distance, so this will definitely be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.

All donations are greatly appreciated, thanks for reading!
