I met young Isla and her family last night for the first time when I went to collect the West Ham kit from their house.
A very very humbling experience.
Isla’s parents are so strong and Isla was running around like any normal 3 year old just a week after an op to remove a brain tumour with the only visible signs being her face and head are totally bruised from the surgery
Today’s Brentwood half marathon was cancelled due to the inclement weather and will not be rescheduled.
I took all the donations on the premise that I would do the forfeits I put in place.
So I will honour them all.
So now on Saturday 31st March, I will run a much more dangerous route from Cold Blow Lane to the Olympic Stadium via the New Den and the Boleyn ground wearing full West Ham kit and having claret and blue dyed hair. I will do crosses hammers at the finish where I will meet up with some of Isla’s fundraisers and then take in the West Ham v Southampton game
I’ll be surprised if I don’t get a whack from someone along the route, more so through Millwall territory in Bermondsey!!
I hope this will satisfy all of those who have donated.
Wish me luck, I need it!!
I thank you all once more for your incredible support
