I am very privileged to again have a place in the London marathon. Last year I ran the marathon and raised £2,700 thanks to many generous donations from family, friends, colleagues and my work. This year, with much more effort, I want to raise an even greater amount.
Crohn's and Colitis UK provide all manner of support to people with inflammatory bowel disease (primarily Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), as well as campaigning for better provision of treatment and fundraising for research into these devastating diseases. These diseases are also surprisingly common, but not particularly high profile, owing to people's insides being a rather unpleasant subject.
Many thanks for your kind donations - it means a great deal to me and will benefit many people.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK is a national charity in the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. We are fighting to achieve a better quality of life for the 300,000 people in the UK suffering physically and emotionally from these and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Ultimately, we want to find a cure.
