Ann's story 

Name: Ann Dean

Parallel Challenge: 10km

I ran the 10k at Parallel last year for a local little boy called Stanley Newman. Stanley has congenital muscular dystrophy. His mum and dad do loads to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy and their own charity, Stanley's Heroes Family Fund.

Running is my way of raising funds and awareness to help. I am running Parallel this year and can’t wait. It was such an awe-inspiring day last year and very humbling. To watch participants of all abilities was truly amazing and I am so pleased it is happening all over again!!
