During early 2022, I took a step further and did something that pushed myself personally and conversations around infertility, which now affects 1 in 6 people of reproductive age all over the world. It’s a difficult subject for most people to talk about,and deeply personal.It is not an easy route to take, not available to everyone but there is some hope. That’s why I chose to support these good causes, that are also consistent with my research interests:

 

A unique national charity that provides free support for people experiencing fertility related issues. The charity has been running for over 20 years and provides a sorely needed, unbiased service that helps people deal with the repercussions of infertility. http://www.fertilitynetworkuk.org

A supportive charity network for families with children conceived with donated sperm, eggs, and embryos. Also, for those thinking about or undergoing donor conception procedures and for donor conceived people themselves. A vital resource for those whose lives that are affected. http://www.dcnetwork.org

In total, I ran:

·       The Brighton Marathon (26.2 miles)

·       The Brett Lydd 20 mile race and The Brighton Half Marathon (total 33.1 miles)

·       Three 10km races (Ashford, Canterbury, Velodrome) plus the Canterbury 10 mile (total 28.6 miles)

·       Nine park runs (total 27.9 miles)

I am pleased to say that I raised over £5,000 for these good causes and I am so grateful to all my sponsors, but especially my corporate sponsors
