I will be running the Reading half marathon on the 19th of March 20 17 for Daisy's Dream. They are a professional support service that help children across Berkshire and the surrounding areas that have to deal with losses that I don't think I could cope with as an adult. They also help families that ware dealing with life threatening illnesses.

As some of you may know, Charlie Cronin passed last march after a strong fight. Andy and Nick Cronin, Charlie's dad and Grandad, work with me at CEMAS and are two of the loveliest and most helpful people you will meet, as are the rest of the Cronin's. Charlie was a wonderful girl with a strong spirit and an amazing family who supported her. When she passed, Daisy's Dream helped Charlie's brother Reece to deal with this great loss.

After speaking with Andy, Daisy's Dream seemed like such a deserving charity to run for and I would love to raise money in Charlie’s memory to help other children, like Reece, that are having to go through these unthinkable times.

Please help me to raise money and awareness for this thoughtful charity.
