Stewart's Half Marathon Challenge
My auntie has battled stoically with cancer for a number of years now. I wanted to do something to show my support to her whilst helping to support the leading lights in cancer medicine in their development of new treatments for cancer sufferers worldwide.
I am not a natural sportsman and always got picked last at school sports, so I thought a sponsored run would be a great way to challenge myself! I had always wanted to run the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in Orlando. I spent 5 months training for the 13.1mile run, running 4 times a week to bring my fitness up to standard. Both the run itself and the fundraising were hugely successful. I was pleased simply to finish the race but to finish well up in the field gave me a real boost. I was running for my auntie – she is a fighter so I am glad to have put in a strong performance for her.Back to 'Be Inspired' main menu
