That’s a wrap 18 April 2021
Last weekend I completed the second and final (for now) running challenge on my journey to share my daughter Margot’s story. The Arrowsmith Highcountry Marathon was an epic adventure, made even more challenging by the constant rain and waterlogged tracks! In those conditions it was easily comparable to the C2C run. Full credit to those who helped me get to the start line, particularly @francestoulmin and @dougalallan who made sure I was prepared enough to enjoy it!
The support and feedback my family and I have received throughout has been inspirational, and has not only helped me cross the finish line, but also achieved our goal of sharing Margot’s story far and wide and creating new connections and opportunities globally. Your support has enabled us to get Margot a bike trailer, which will be modified to provide the support she needs. We have been connected with multiple families facing similar challenges around the globe thanks to those who have shared the story. In a few weeks, Margot will undertake a 2 week intensive physical therapy programme at home (with a therapist from Auckland that we have connected with) and in a few months, Frances and Margot will travel to Australia for a further 3 week intensive physical therapy programme. None of these opportunities could have been achieved without your support.
Thank you everyone, we are forever grateful! #movingformargot
