Story


I have reached my target and completed the London Marathon but please don't go away - it would be great to raise even more for The Trust - thank you!

I am a world champion (70-74 age group) race walker. I enjoyed my first Marathon, 3 days after my 73rd birthday. I walked it in 4 hours 43 minutes and 24 seconds.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: MS Trust gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation. So there is still time to sponsor me.

Thank you!
