2019 03 Mitra - Barcelona Marathon

     
Sunday, March 10, 2019 - 09:00

Hello! I'm inviting you to support my first marathon to raise money and awareness for a charity that is very close to my heart, CMV Action.  CMV is the most common infection passed from mother to unborn baby. It is one of the leading causes of hearing loss and one of the main causes of childhood disability.

My superstar niece Parisa was born with this virus 8 years ago and is profoundly deaf with cochlear implants. She is a smart, beautiful fun loving, sporty girl flourishing in every way despite her disability.

The CMV Action Charity is an organisation led by volunteers including Parisa's mum Caroline, who chairs the organisation and has worked tirelessly, harnessing her own devastating experience to bring awareness to this virus, support families and prevent others going through this.

I'm not a runner and this will be a huge challenge for me personally. Knowing that a few hours of pain for me can perhaps be of some help to the charity in a small way, would make it worth while.

Any amount is appreciated and I thank you in advance :)
