Story

Thank you for visiting our JustGiving page.

Running the London Marathon is something of a last minute decision by both of us. When two runners dropped out last minute, we knew that this was an opportunity to do something fantastic for an amazing charity and within minutes we'd both signed up to put ourselves through 26.2 gruelling miles of the London Marathon for Ronald McDonald House, Alder Hey.

Personally, I (Sam) know only too well the work that Ronald McDonald House do for families with seriously ill children in hospital. When my little lad, Jayden, had a stay at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in September/October last year, they provided FREE accommodation for as long as required, with showers and washing facilities - for many who live hours away, this is a small saviour in what is the most stressful time for any family.

Ronald McDonald House in Liverpool alone require £600,000 per year to continuing providing free accommodation and rely solely on donations, with no government funding at all. We know if we can make a small difference towards this then it will be greatly appreciated by those who'll need it for years to come.

Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed. Many thanks in advance for your support, it means a lot to us both.
