Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

For a few years I have held the ambition to complete a marathon - and this year I am going to try. Running along the banks of Loch Ness -  one my favourite places and one that has great family and personal connections.

My knees are not being very encouraging and my common sense keeps suggesting more sedate use of my time - but at least the lack of hair on my head nowadays should help reduce the drag coefficient.

The small amount of pain and inconvenience that I will suffer is quite simply not worth a mention alongside the phenomenal, heroic and humbling battle that so many men, women and children put up to beat cancer.

Lives that are so often turned upside down and forever changed in a very short time. Nobody knows what is round the corner and if you are like me you try not to even think about it.

So if I can do just a tiny little bit to help support all the friends, families and colleagues and ask you to give a contribution toward Maggies - who do such a fantastic job to help so many people at their most vulnerable.

All I ask for is a small donation from you and I'll try my very best to do the miles.

Many thanks and much appreciated

Gordon
