Mr Humphreys is running the marathon

27th February 2020

Dear Parents

This week’s thought for the week has struck with particular resonance Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself as I find myself not only recovering from a chest infection, but in the grips of training for the London Marathon on 26th April.

Why am I putting myself through this I hear you cry, well this year marks my 30th anniversary of becoming a Type 1 Diabetic. I remember well, being first diagnosed, and the nurse sitting on my bed in hospital telling me not to worry, they would find a cure in my lifetime. Well 30 years on and they are still looking.

I am running in order to raise money for the Charity JDRF (Junior Diabetic Research Foundation). This amazing charity aim to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. I would be so grateful if you would sponsor me in my endeavours.

If you click the link to my Just Giving page, it will explain a little more about my motivation!

With many thanks

Phil Humphreys
