Story

Hi. My name is Dillan and I am planning to do a 420 mile run from Pondhu Primary in St. Austell to the Houses of Parliament (London). This run is to raise funds for Pondhu primary and other schools who are in desperate need of equipped sensory rooms. This will help our teachers tremendously in assisting our children.

My plan is to complete the run in 7 days, averaging 60 miles a day. Crazy i know, but it's for a good cause. With me I will be taking letters from parents who will write about the everyday challenges they have with their children and sometimes they have to wait years before they are finally diagnosed. Some parents end up taking their kids out of desperation to get a private diagnoses costing them thousands of pounds. The letters will be handed over to the Houses of Parliament.

My goal is to get as many letters as possible from parents in Cornwall and throughout the UK to hand over to the Minister. Lets bombard them with letters. I am planning to go see as many schools in Cornwall leading up to my run. So if you are one of those parents or know of someone then please get in contact with me.

Just your average dad who will be attempting this run. I do trail running but have never attempted something like this. It was an idea my 7 year old( who has also been waiting for over 2 years now to get a diagnoses) came up with when he asked me what the furthest i have ever run. His next question was, "would you be able to run to London dad" which in a jokingly way I said im sure i could if I trained for it. And so from that moment this challenge started

You will be able to follow my training and preperation leading up to the event. You will also be able to track my run live when i do the run. If you would like to be part of this fundraiser then please let us know. We need sponsors.
If you have any ideas that might help this event then i would also like to hear from you.

Thank you

Dillan and Siobhan
