Dom's 1000KM To The Great North Run 2020
EVERY PENNY RAISED GOES TO IF U CARE SHARE FOUNDATION, EVEN IF I'M UNDER OR OVER TARGET.
September 2019 I ran my first half marathon for IF U CARE SHARE FOUNDATION. It's amazing because going back to the beginning of the year I couldn't run a mile without wanting to pass out and it was a year filled with hurdles as far as my training goes, various health issues holding me back but once I started to train from mid-June I was gripped and managed to finish 7 minutes faster than my target, completing it in 2HR 23MINS 4SECS but who's counting.
The day after the run I felt lost with nothing to train for, so I decided to set myself a challenge starting from 13th of September 2019 finishing with the Great North Run 2020 on Sunday 13th of September 2020, A year to run 1000KM and as many races as I can do for IF YOU CARE SHARE and raise money along the way for this amazing foundation. The work they are doing and support they're providing is paramount at a time where suicide sadly seems to be at an all-time high and only getting worse. I have been affected personally with the loss of friends over the last nine years and it seems everyone I speak to either friends, family or work colleagues, we all know or know someone to have lost family or friends to suicide. Please help me raise as much money as possible for IUCSF to be able to provide more lifesaving help and support to prevent suicide and to help those to deal with the devastation suicide leaves behind.
