Running Potters ‘Arf Marathon and Wiggle Manchester Half Marathon in Support of CRY


I completed the two half marathons I took part in. I ran in the Stoke-on-Trent local half marathon on the 09/06/19, which is called the Potters ‘Arf Marathon, and I also ran in the Wiggle Manchester Half Marathon on the 13/10/19. Altogether I’ve managed to raise £152.00 for CRY. I wanted to run for CRY because they are a fantastic charity that does unbelievable work to raise awareness of undiagnosed cardiac conditions. I too was diagnosed with a heart condition myself 10 years ago. I was very fortunate that they found this when they did, because in May 2015, when I was 30 years of age, I would go on to have open heart surgery. With the help of everyone at the Royal Stoke Hospital who performed the operation, and with the help of the British Heart Foundation, I would make a full recovery. I am truly grateful for what they did, and to this day I can honestly say I’ve never felt better. The work that both charities do, CRY and BHF, is truly remarkable, thank you for the great work that you carry out.
