I signed up to train for the Manchester Marathon for the Ruth Strauss Foundation (RSF), established by the former England Cricket Captain, Sir Andrew Strauss, in memory of his wife, Ruth Strauss, who died of lung cancer.
During my fundraising campaign, I reached a total of over £7000. In recognition of my efforts, the RSF invited me to be their ambassador at the Lords test match between England and India, on the day dedicated to the RSF. I led the teams out onto the pitch, carrying the flag for the Foundation. Here are some photos of Andrew Strauss with me on that memorable day.
