Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We all take things for granted at times and its not until something you love is 'forbidden' that you start to see things differently.

My name is Brooke and I am forbidden to take part in sport and physical activity for a period of time due to spinal fusion surgery.  My prized possession has been taken away from me and I am looking through a one way mirror at others doing what I can only dream of.

The 'Forbidden Mile' is asking those who are able to, to take on a 1 mile challenge, be that running, skipping or skateboarding a mile, cycling, walking backwards or completing a 1 mile assault course.  The list is endless.  All I ask is that you dedicate your mile to me (and others in a similar situation) and donate £1-2 to my chosen charities.  The choice is yours but make it as wacky as you can!

Once you have completed your 'Forbidden Mile'  you must nomitate 3 others and then please post your challenge video or picture(s) on our Facebook page If you can and make your  donation. 

Please don't ever take things for granted. 'I can't be bothered' is not an option.  If you have the ability to do it then do it! Some people would do anything to be in your position right now. Enjoy the challenge :-)
