Story

On Sunday the 24th of September I shall be running (along with a few hundred others) 7 kilometres around the City of London dressed as a Gorilla. Additional costume suggestions greatly appreciated.

And I'm not just doing this for kicks, either. It's to raise money for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund (they do good work!) who're dedicated to saving gorillas (presumably in the same way that missionaries save fallen women - I'm a little sketchy on the details but there's more info here: http://www.gorillas.org).

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund 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. However, you should be aware that JustGiving do take 5% of the money you pledge through this site, so if you're going to see me some time around the 24th, or it'd be convenient to meet up beforehand, and you'd rather do that so that every single penny goes into saving those delicious apes so that future generations can enjoy their juicy flesh, then e-mail me and we'll sort something out.

And if all that wasn't enough of an incentive to sponsor me, see this lovely little film which will surely persuade you to part with your money: http://www.rungorillarun.com/sponsorme.html

Anyway, please sponsor me now!

Thanks for your support,

tom

James would also like to thank all of his lovely friends who've taken the time to stop by and sponsor him. Cheers guys!
As would Ben. Thanks chaps!
