I have chosen to raise money for The Matt Ratana Rugby Foundation as a tribute to Matt, who was a friend as well as my rugby coach. Matt has inspired so many others to fulfill their potential and achieve unlikely goals. I felt that in 2022, it was fitting that I run the South Downs Way 100 Mile Ultra to raise money for this charity and honour Matt. This will be without doubt my greatest and toughest challenge but knowing that I am doing this for a charity that I have a strong emotional connection with will hopefully help me through the darkest moments.
