Hi My Name is Simon Horwood I am also known as Mini or Mouse
The reason I am running the London Marathon is to help raise money for Carers Support West Sussex, the help and support that this charity provides to carers is amazing. I am grateful for the help and support they have given me over the past few years since I became Jan’s main carer and I would like to give something back to them.
Back in 2008 I met my wife Jan, we were married in 2013 and between us we have 4 lovely children.
