Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

My name is Ben Moss, I am a student in London and I am going to be running the 2012 Virgin London Marathon for Sense (or rather dancing it!). For many years I have been a keen morris dancer and to help raise funds and awareness I hope to dance the course, in full kit, bells and all! In the gallery below there's a short video I did with Sense to explain a little bit more about exactly what I'll be doing! If you want to make a guess at how long you think it will take me then visit my Guess2Give page at https://login.guess2give.com/guess/registerguesses/558 just £3 a guess and 50p goes into the prize fund while £2.50 goes to Sense.

My brother ran the 2010 Virgin London Marathon for Sense as well and the work they do is really amazing. Sense is the lading national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind. They provide expert advice and information as well as specialist services to deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them. They also support people who have sensory impairments with additional disabilities. For more information you can visit their site at http://www.sense.org.uk/

For all those people who have been asking who the musician is going to be, I'm afraid I have not found anyone crazy enough to play for 26.2 miles, and the marathon organisers might take exception to musicians bursting onto the course every few miles in a relay race of musical accompaniment. Next year we'll get a set of 6 with a full compliment of musicians out...

Dancing a marathon is no mean feat but donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please give what you can and help me to smash my target! As a leading supermarket retailer would say- "every little helps"...
