This will the biggest physical endurance challenge of my life. This year I completed the London half marathon and a few other charity challenges including the London to Brighton bike ride.

As a kid, I took so much from scouting and I wanted to do something to give back to the kids. It really is one of the best things they can do in their younger years.

At present, I am a member of 12th Northolt Scout group with Greenford & District Scouts.

Each year the Scout Association helps 400,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. The friends that scouts make are often for life.

As well as online and social media campaigns, I’ll be running fundraising events and will post up updates and photos from them on here as I go along. Every penny counts so I’d appreciate any amount of donation.

I know it will be gruelling on the day but I WILL finish the run one way or another.

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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
