Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On Friday 29th March 2013 I will start running from Land's End and over 20 consecutive days I will cover almost 1000 miles to John O'Groats. That is almost 2 marathons each and every day. By the end of it I hope to have raised over £50,000. Your donation will be a big part towards raising this figure, and helping a very worthwhile cause.
