Thank you Jessica!

Now this is a tale about one of our amazing Wish Warriors, her name is Jessica Apps.  Jessica for years had tried to fall in love with running, and finally about 2 years ago it started to click. Jessica said that her inspiration started when she worked on the Olympics project and started running weekly Park Runs.  Jessica started to lose weight and began to feel healthier, and so her running really starting to improve.  In September 2013 Jessica ran her first half marathon, with a broken toe, she was so determined to complete it.

Jess AppsAt the end of 2013 Jessica celebrated her 40th birthday, her daughter suggested that she should do 40 park runs to celebrate.  However Jessica decided to do 40 different sporting events in her 40th year, these included park runs, open water swims, triathlons, 50 mile bike ride, half marathons and the Prudential Ride London (which she completed with her friends Rebecca and Suzy), and even better for us Jessica decided to do all these events whilst raising money for Alex’s Wish.

Over the year Jessica has managed to complete all 40 events, the last one being a Halloween Fun Run, and has managed to raise a staggering £3,396.80 for Alex’s Wish.  Without Wish Warriors like Jessica we would not be able to raise the funds that we do, to help fund treatments and potential cures for this devastating disease, so thank you Jessica for choosing to support Alex’s Wish – you are a true Wish Warrior.
