Story

2 years ago I ran the London Marathon and promised my self I would never ever do it again, I really struggled to get through! However here I am again taking it on again in 2017

Why???

Have a little read below about Child Action and how amazing they are, I couldn't turn down a place for such a great charity.

Some of you will know that in Feb me and my wife are also expecting our first child so there will be lots of sleep deprived runs leading up to the marathon.

So I am putting on my running shoes again to run the London Marathon 2017. Child Action have one Marathon space, and I have it!  By running for Child
Action, I aim to make a difference to the relentless cycle of poverty that
children born in the slums of Mumbai face. 

Child Action (http://www.child-action.org/ ) creates
and funds learning opportunities for children living within Mumbai's most
disadvantaged communities.  Even a donation of £10 or £20 will make a
significant difference to the access to basic numeracy and literacy that they
can provide for a child living on the streets or in the slums.  I am
aiming to raise at least £2000, and what's more,
Child Action will match fund every penny
I raise, if I reach or exceed £2000
!

Please dig deep and spur
me on with your donations!
