I have the privilege of leading Fawcett. I'm proud of our research and the campaigning work we do, even more so in this centenary year. But we only exist because of funding we receive from our members and supporters. We want to grow our impact and speed up the pace of change. But we can only do that with your help! If you value us and what we do, please support us.

On 14th October I'm one of the Fawcett Royal Parks Half Marathon runners. I have never run as far as this before. Some of you will know that I had a skiing accident in 2006 and fractured my hip. This led me to have a hip replacement 5 years ago. So running long distances is an extra challenge. Please support! Sam Smethers
