Story

  Thanks for visting our page! As many of you know on Halloween 2006 I was nearly killed in a bad RTA. M (ercia) A (ccident) R (escue) S (ervice) were called first to my accident. They deliver advanced, pre hospital emergency medical care to the critically ill and injured. I may have been unlucky with my timing in the car but I was very lucky with my timing as Dr Malcolm Russell (a MARS medic) was passing on the M5. He saved my life by stabilising me and calling a helicopter that took me to Selly Oak hospital.

  Without Malcolm and Mars I wouldn't be here today. So it seems a very small effort to do something for a relatively unknown charity that did so much for me. It was inevitable i'd run a marathon (or attempt one) at some point and never one to take a normal path we've opted for the Loch Ness marathon in my homeland of Scotland!

   My good friend Matthew Meckin has been a rock to me in my recovery and has kindly joined forces with me to swim with Nessie! So please sponsor the two of us and help us put MARS on the map and earn them deserved cash for the fantastic work they do.

Thank You

June 2011- Thanks to Mary Barnes Physiotherapy & Malvern College Sports Centre for being our 2 main sponsors offering physio and facilities in our preparations up until the Marathon.

We are also doing a sponsored climb for MARS. Our team is going to climb the height of Kilimanjaro using the indoor walls at Vertical Limit, Shrub Hill, Worcester. A major challenge that we hope will raise even more for MARS, thanks again!

Thank you Tacklesport for sponsoring us and i'm glad to say on Sunday 2nd October both myself & Matt completed the Loch Ness Marathon. THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAS CONTRIBUTED/ DONATED TO MARS!
