Gemma Morris, one of Luxaviation UK’s fabulous cabin attendants is taking part in the Abbott World Marathon Majors raising money for the Anthony Nolan charity.
The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series of six of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world: Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon, Virgin Money London Marathon, BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, Bank of America Chicago Marathon and TCS New York City Marathon.
Gemma has so far completed 2 of the majors in the last 6 months, most recently the TCS New York City Marathon in just over 6 hours. She has so far together raised £6,700.
‘It was one of the toughest things I’ve done in my life. Thought I was going to drop out around 18 miles. It rained constantly, I was in agony and unwell throughout. But finally I finished.’
Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with a blood cancer or blood disorder. They do this by matching incredible individuals willing to donate their stem cells, to people who desperately need a lifesaving transplant.
‘My aim is to raise as much as I possibly can for Anthony Nolan, they are truly amazing the work that they do. I feel very close to them as I lost my Father to mantle Cell Lymphoma 12 years ago. Scientific research done by them is self-funded and through fundraising alone. It's their research like this which helps people to have more time with their loved ones who are suffering from Leukaemia, Lymphoma and other Blood Disorders. ’
We all wish Gemma the very best of luck for her remaining marathons.
