On 3rd October I will be running the London Virtual Marathon as a bumble bee on a bee I spired route through the Shropshire countryside for the amazing charity TOFS, this charity supports children and adults who were born unable to swallow and their families. It is a lifeline for thousands of individuals and has been a source of continued support to us since Owen was born in 2018. It is Bee inspired in gratitude to Manchester children's where Owen has had all his treatment and the Manchester bee has always been a big symbol for us as a family. We wanted to raise money as a thankyou to all organisations that helped us along the way. My husband Paul previously raised money for Manchester Children's and now it's my turn to raise money for TOFS.

TOFS offers support to people born with Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula (TOF) and/or Oesophageal Atresia (OA). These are rare congenital malformaltions of the gullet and windpipe. Immediate neonatal surgery is a treatment, not a complete cure. We are UK-based and receive no public-sector support at all.
