Story

My name is Mark O'Connor and I am one of the First Team Coaches at Stoke City FC.

I have decided that 2013 is the year that I take on the challenge of running the gruelling 26 miles of the London Marathon course in aid of one of the clubs local charities - The Donna Louise Children's Hospice.

The Donna Louise Children's Hospice is located about a mile away from the grounds of Stoke City FC and provides respite and end of life care for children not expected to reach the age of 19 years across Staffordshire & South Cheshire.

In order for the charity to be able to provide the care so desperately needed, they need to raise a staggering £2.4million a year. So by me taking on this challenge and hopefully raising at least £5,000 for the charity - we will help them to make every moment count for so many.

So please dig as deep as you can and remember that every penny counts.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
