Story

Never mind the Olympics, 2012 is my Year Without Beer! I am spending all 366 days of this leap year alcohol free in an attempt to raise money for charity.

If giving up all alcohol for a year isn’t enough of a challenge to make you dig deep and show your support, in June I also decided to take up running and plan to run 500 miles by the end of the year! As part of my running challenge I am signed up to run a quarter marathon, 10 mile road race (Great South Run) and 8 mile off road challenge (The Grim Original).

Why am I raising money for Cancer Research UK?

 

Sadly most of our lives have been or will be affected by cancer at some point. Cancer has robbed many families of their loved ones, including my Dad who passed away from cancer in 1998 and both of my wife’s parents.

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. It works to fight cancer on all fronts, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it to save more lives. It is entirely funded by the public. With your help, we can ensure more people beat cancer.

 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
