Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

I'm now officially entered into the 2010 Brighton Marathon, which takes place a week before the London Marathon on the same month.

Sadly one of my sponsors on this page has already succumbed to the disease I am running to try and defeat. And I went all the way to America to attend a celebration of someone's life who also recently lost his fight. So this is a cause worth supporting, in any way you can.

It will be my first marathon and I'm assured the statistics indicate I have a better than average chance of surviving, so that's something. On a serious note I am trying to raise funds so that those facing a real survival challenge have as best a chance as possible of surviving too. So that's my hard-sell to you: I'm already in training and after having not trained for a couple of weeks because of being on the road in the UK and US  I made hard work of 26K this week. Next weekend my target is 28K, and so on. A marathon is 42K!

Its a small challenge compared to someone with cancer, and any small donation you feel able to offer will go a long way both to motivating me but also to contributing to their struggle. So on my behalf and theirs: thank-you.

For those without anything better to do I shall start a blog about this nearer the time! Watch this space...

The small print:

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity 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.
