Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Martin House. It's a great Yorkshire based charity for kids so please dig deep and sponsor me online.
I'm the first to admit that I'm not built for long distance running and training hasn't exactly gone to plan for this race (not good at getting up early in the morning and pub is often to inviting in the evening). So, I know the Edinburgh marathon on Sunday 11th June is going to really hurt. However, if you give generously then it will spur me on and help me get over that finish line.
So please sponsor me now!
Many thanks for your support.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Martin House Hospice for Children and Young People will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
12/06/06: I did it ... I ran the marathon in sweltering temperatures of over 26c, but finished in 4h 47mins ... please see www.aberford.net for photos from the day.
