Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am taking on the Marathon Des Sables to raise money for Scotty's Little Soldiers. The charity helps children who have lost parents during service with the British Army.  

MDS has been branded by the Discovery Channel as being the "Toughest Footrace on Earth" It is a 156 mile 0r 251 Km Ultra Marathon over 7 days across the Sahara desert. Gruelling conditions, rolling sand dunes and mountains with temperatures peaking at 50 Degrees Celsius. I will be carrying all my food, clothing and essential survival equipment throughout my race, sleeping in basic bivouacs and replenishing water supply approx. every 10 miles. Not for the faint hearted so please help me raise money to donate towards a great cause. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. 

Once again thank you so much for your kind donations. 

Anthony.
