I'm still not sure how it happened, but somehow I find myself running the Flora London Marathon on 13th April to raise money for AUK! Francine in the AUK office is very persuasive...... and very encouraging! This is very exciting and scary, as I've never done a marathon before although I have been running fairly regularly for the last 18 months.
The point of this crazy enterprise is of course to raise money for, yup, AUK, and as a lifelong asthmatic and longtime user of the AUK site I am very aware of the fantastic support and services that AUK provides. As someone who works with children in hospital in ""real life"" I am also particularly impressed by the Kick Asthma holidays and it's great to hear how much the children and young people enjoy them and benefit from them.
Sooooooo - please sponsor me to help AUK continue all their work!!!!!!!
I have a justgiving site at justgiving.com/emmaweisblatt where you can find out a bit more about me and can donate or pledge securely. Please feel free to PM me with comments or questions too!
I am hoping for better weather than they had for the AUK 10k last weekend, but whatever happens I am looking forward to it and determined to enjoy the experience while raising lots of money for AUK!
Thanks very much for reading this and for your support,
