Sharon ‘Shabba’ Boulton
Sharon is running the St Helens 10k in aid of The Foundation. The following is from her online fundraising page:
I started going to the gym in June 2014 and decided I needed a goal, so my decision I made was to run the St Helens 10k as it would give me plenty of time to train for it
The two charities I have chosen are very close to me. First of all, The Adam Stansfield Foundation, Adam played for Exeter City and knew him from my time as a volunteer at the club. In early 2010 he was diagnosed with bowel cancer, he had an operation in May 2010 and we all hoped that it had been successful. On the 10th August 2010, news broke that Adam had passed away. He was 31, leaving behind his wife, Marie, and three sons. It shocked Exeter City fans, along with fans from his previous clubs. The Adam Stansfield Foundation was set up in his name.
Steve Prescott was a Saints player when I first got into Saints, on the occasions I met him he was always friendly and polite. In 2006 he was diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. However, Steve didn’t let it get him down and as most know he went on to do some extreme challenges raising money for SPF. Sadly on the 9th November 2013 Steve passed away, so it is his determination that has prompted me to get fit and do the St Helens 10k.
