Spire Shield of Courage (in memory of Brenda Boyle)

Charley Miles.

Special award to recognise the inspirational achievement of Charley Miles.~

Charley was born with 18q Syndrome a rare chromosome disorder. This means she has a number of health issues including being almost completely deaf. Her hearing condition is alleviated somewhat by a bone anchored hearing aid which allows her brain to interpret sounds via the vibrations transmitted into her skull. Given her condition, she has ongoing challenges and has struggled to find employment but strives to be like any other 24 year old.

She remains though very cheerful, almost always with a smile on her face and a very determined young lady - a regular member of the 1066 Specials football team, intrepid explorer and walker.

Having thought about completing the Hastings Half Marathon over the years, she was inspired by her uncle who came from Sydney, Australia to run this year and decided only a few days before that she was up for the challenge too.

She knew that she was never going to be fast, but her goal was to complete the course. Wearing the new kit she had bought the day before she walked and ran the course, determined that she would finish despite the crowds of spectators and marshal's having largely gone long before she reached the later parts of the course. Charley never gave up crossing the line to a waiting small group of family, marshalls and kind supporters in 4 hours and 42 minutes.

The time didn’t matter to Charley it was all about putting herself to the challenge of completing the course. What an inspiration to us all.

I would now like to present Charley with the Spire Hospital Brenda Boyle Shield of Courage Award in recognition of her fantastic achievement.
