So I'm running my first marathon on the 6th October 2019, the chosen marathon is the Bournemouth marathon.
I'm running to raise money for band of builders who I've closely followed through Facebook.
Band of Builders is an organisation started by tradespeople, for tradespeople, no matter what they're going through.
When Addam Smith’s mate Keith Ellick was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Addam wanted to do something - anything - to make his life a little bit easier. A plan to landscape his garden captured won the support of his fellow tradesmen and saw the project grow into a full-scale renovation of Keith’s house carried out by volunteers from across the country.
From there Band of Builders has been unstoppable, uniting members of the construction industry through the simple desire to help others. Every item of the branded workwear we’ve created helps raise money for the cause as well as uniting people in a community that has seen complete strangers go on to become firm friends.
Check out the website to learn what they are all about and watch the video of kieths project.
You can also view the other amazing projects that they have carried out with the help of the amazing volunteers on the website too.
I hope you can donate or support in anyway. Anything can make a change and help towards making someone's life easier and better.
