Walking a Marathon or Four for Adam

Many years ago I met Charlotte through Group B Strep Support  and wanted to help raise the profile of her blog Walking for Adam. Charlotte was and is passionate about raising awareness of Group B Strep to prevent other families from walking in Adam's shoes. You can read more about Adam's story on Charlotte's blog.

As you will discover, life for Adam has been turned upside down, as Charlotte's beloved husband has been diagnosed with a swift and aggressive form of cancer, and now due to that evil virus has now been isolated for 12 weeks at least.

I have wondered how to help Charlotte practically, and was, during Easter time, going to go and see if I could help her. Now of course that is impossible.

So when I discovered Group B Strep Support had launched Marathon in a Month I thought it was ideal and would really stretch me to make sure I got those miles in . Well now the game has changed.

With the current restrictions I am allowed one health walk a day then a trip to do an errand. Not being able to drive means I walk every where. I achieved the marathon last week alone. So I am going to endeavour to do 4, a marathon a week. Plus at least one of these will be walked by Joseph.

I have met with the CEO over the phone and in person and I have every confidence every penny will be well spent to ensure this condition is prevented through education and whilst they fight for routine testing for every pregnancy.

Thank you in advance for you support
