Ladies and gentlemen... I am not a natural runner!

I appear to have accidentally signed up to run a half marathon having not run much further than my art studio to the fridge for many months. It also appears that this half marathon is at an average 5,500 feet, the temperature is 25ºC, and it's very hilly! Thanks for taking the time to witness what is possibly the most ill-informed decision I will make this year, if not in my lifetime.

For those that don't know me, I'm an ex-military helicopter pilot and have served in Kenya on MedEvac duties to rescue injured troops and transport them to Nairobi back in 2016. (More details on my website www.hannahshergold.com). I'm now an artist and Tusk ambassador and raise a lot of money for Tusk through the sale of my work, but realistically my paintings are a bit too much of a financial stretch for most. I know so many of you want to support Tusk's work, and so whilst giant blisters, heat stroke and cardiac arrest seem like a bizarre trade-off for a holiday in Africa, I will at least be able to give you a way to contribute to Tusk's incredible conservation projects.  

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. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for Tusk.

Please give generously. Any donations that make me fall off my chair (when I'm sober) will receive an invitation to visit my art studio in Cheltenham! Happy sponsoring x
