So far in life things have gone pretty well and I am happy to so I have not been personally affected by any serious family illnesses or unexpected bereavements but so many people out there have and as a fairly capable and motivated young individual, I wanted to try a make a difference for some of those in a much less fortunate position.
After losing my marathon virginity less than a week ago, I am hoping to run 7 marathons in 7 days to raise money for 7 different charities that all do such amazing work. This won’t be until June 2017 but that gives me plenty of time to both train and raise more money. The seven charities I will be raising money for are:
1) Alzheimer’s Society
2) Cancer Research UK
3) Child Bereavement UK
4) Compton Hospice
5) Help For Heroes
6) Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
With regards to the route, I will begin the 185.3 mile journey on the coast of Dover and hopefully finish a week later in Wolverhampton completing the route in seven legs of roughly a marathon distance each day.
Days = 7
Hours = 168
Miles = 185.3
Kilometres = 296.48
Marathons run so far = 1
