I have suffered from asthma my entire life, and I have been in hospital 3 times with severe asthma attacks. I would relish the opportunity to give back to Asthma UK after they have supported me for so many years.
Asthma UK help thousands of people with expert advice, they fund world class asthma research and campaign to improve the care given to asthma sufferers.
I wanted to challenge myself so I can raise money to help them keep providing a 24/7 asthma help line, funding for world-class asthma research and advocacy work.
