    Carys and Don's reason for running

    "There have been times where I've felt like the only person going through this horrible situation (even though I know I'm not) and felt that people just don't know what to say. The more we talk about it the more we can support each other."

    "When I crossed the finish line, I was the happiest man on earth. My finish time was 01:43:43; a New Guinness World Record for fastest half marathon in a straitjacket."

    Alexis' Reason for Running

    I know this is going to be a journey full of emotions, but I also know this is something I need to do. Not only for myself but my partner, my son and to show Tilly that she had a huge impact on the world in the short time she was here.
