Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please digger deep and sponsor me online.

This year I thought I needed a new challenge, so decided to tackle the London marathon.

So on 23rd of April i lined up with chewbacca and a guy in a thong (don't ask) to run the Flora London Marathon, and it was wet.

it rained the whole way around, the crowd were fantastic and they are the reason I finished. all the way around people had bags of sweets, jelly babies and strangely salmon sandwiches to give to runners.

First half of the race went well, but my feet blistered badly so became increasingly uncomfortable from abaout 5 miles. But i finished it took a while...6 hours 39 minutes and 31 seconds to be exact, but thanks to everyone who sponsored me and cheered it was worth it.

I really appreciate the sponsorship, but if you havent already you still can sponsor me.


Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Spinal Research will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!

Many thanks for your support.
