Story

Alzheimer's Isle of Man / Ireland

In the past 9 months, I have lost both my parents to Alzheimer's. You could say I lost them some time before then.

They lived in Ireland: I live in the Isle of Man. Hence, my attempt to raise money for organisations in both countries.

There is a fundraising page for Alzheimer's Society of Ireland if you would prefer to donate there. http://www.justgiving.com/owner-email/pleasesponsor/Bernard-O-Kelly

The Isle of Man branch of the Alzheimer's Society doesn't have a separate account to the UK organisation, hence this crowdfunding page.

Why a marathon? It was on my lists of "100 Things To Do Before I'm 40 (later 50)" I'm 55 now!!! Training has gone OK. They stop timing after 6 hours - I'm aiming for 5:59:59!!!

Thank you
