Well I first heard of Teens Unite from my social worker at the hospital as I’m one of the young people the charity supports. I went along to a Mother’s Day Tea and that was great and I have now done so much with Teens Unite. I have been given rugby tickets, gone to music concerts, went on the annual activity stay, won a helicopter trip and been to lots of beauty days. There’s something for the whole family to get involved with too, such as the Father’s Day Go Karting – it’s great!
I have also done ‘It’s A Knockout’ with a team of my schoolmates and I have done the Santa 10k run in London for Teens Unite!
They have a supported me through so much without even realising it. I have made friends for life and even met my boyfriend through the charity!
I wanted to do the London Marathon because it’s the biggest challenge and I’m currently struggling doing 10 miles – God knows how I’m going to do 26 but I would have earnt every penny of my sponsorship!
I’m really looking forward to the crowd on the day and the atmosphere will be incredible but I’m am not looking forward to the sore joints I will get but it will all be worth it.
Five hours of running is the least I can do for the charity that’s been amazing to me for the last five years!
