My name is Rima, and I am a heart patient under the care of The Royal Brompton Hospital for a heart condition called Pulmonary Stenosis. It's no big secret that I do things which I probably shouldn't (one being this run), but I promise I did a practise run for this.

At 6 weeks old I was diagnosed and my parents were told that I'd either come out of surgery alive or dead. Fast forward nearly 27 years, and I am still here, annoying my parents, and my 3 siblings, and everyone else in my life.

I am fortunate to still be standing here today surrounded by numerous people who I love, and hopefully love me.. and because of this, I have chosen to participate in this 10k run, so that people out there who are diagnosed with heart conditions and other medical conditions which Royal Brompton Hospital (RBH) treat, can annoy everyone else in their lives for a very very long time :).

I am even more fortunate that I have my amazing family and friends who will be completing this run with me in order to raise money for RBH. If it wasn't for RBH and all their staff, I wouldn't be here today.

So, if you feel you'd like to contribute to this amazing hospital and their plight to help as many people as they can, please make a donation. No donation is too small and will help tremendously.

Thank you, from all the participants.
