Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.
Some of you may be of the view that I've been bananas for some time and now it is perhaps official..... I've joined the "banana army" and have set myself a target of raising £10,000 for Leukaemia Research.
My personal challenge was officially launched on Sunday 30 September 2007 when I took part in the Great North Run. I received fantastic support from so many friends, family and colleagues and made an incredible start to reaching my fundraising taget. Thank you all very much indeed.
To raise the next £7,000 though I think I need to push myself a little bit harder and do something a little bit more extreme.... Continuing on the theme, therefore, on Wednesday 26 March 2008 I will be taking part in the North Pole Marathon. It is, exactly as its name indicates, a marathon (26.2 miles) race that will take place at the North Pole. For the next few months I will be training to prepare myself for running up to 7 hours in temperatures as low as -40 (thanks to the University of Wolverhampton and the University of Gloucestershire). Whilst I'm getting up at 6:00 every morning then to pound the streets, I would be most grateful if you could think of me and dig deep and sponsor me online.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Leukaemia 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.
