I am running my first ever marathon (Nice-Cannes on Nov 3rd) for ChildAid and my aim is to raise £1K for this charity which lies close to my heart. Indeed being originally from Ukraine, the ongoing conflict in Donbass area is tearing me apart. The conflict has destroyed the livelihoods and homes for many.

ChildAid is partnering with Love Without Borders to bring relief and help to rebuild lives. Individual children and families are offered long term support dependent on their needs – whether medical, surgical, educational or material.

Please donate as little or as much as you can to support this charity... and also to motivate me on those long runs! I have completed a couple of half marathons in the past but I don’t think I realized just how tough the training and to run a marathon would be... I really appreciate everyone support!

Here is my marathon route:
