6 Marathons in 5 Days through Africa carrying all my own kit!

Now thats got your attention here comes the story, please read to the end.

2 years ago my eldest son Benjamin was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. A fun sporty young lad over the course of 2 days had his life turned upside down.

As you can imagine we were distraught and without the help of the local Diabetes clinics and clubs things could have been a lot worse.

Ben is now back to playing sports and leading a normal(ish) life. So to raise money for these clubs is something close to my heart. As such i have decided to raise in excess of £10,000 to help.

A series of events will be held over the next 18 months but i am undertaking to run the London Marathon 2019 and finishing with 6 Marathons in 5 Days in Africa in November 2019.

Surely this is worth a couple of pounds!

Thanks for taking the time to read
