Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Dmitry’s JustGiving page to support my marathon run.

 

I have been running marathons for some time now and have raised money for charity on a number of occasions. This year I have chosen The Youth Association, that is to say young people, to be the beneficiaries of my marathon’s proceeds.

 

My personal ambition, and the target I have set myself, is to complete all five major world marathons; London, Boston, Berlin, Chicago and New York. Boston is the oldest modern marathon and is the fourth on my list to accomplish.

 

We’re now facing economic troubles and financial turmoil in this country and I know that the charities serving our youth have the toughest of times ahead. These problems could place restrictions on opportunities for young people to contribute to our society and I’m not prepared to let this happen. The youth of today are the adults of tomorrow and recent cuts to youth work is a sign that this is being forgotten.

 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to The Youth Association and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity. So please dig deep and donate now.
