Hello World! Another month, another run, and from here on in we're upping the ante! future marathons will be run in costume, Batman no less, and fundraising is the game. The challenge will be two fold, as you can imagine, covering marathon distances in costume does mean the runs will be harder, so therefore, I would appreciate more dosh from you!
I completed the Great scottish Half Marathon, followed by the Loch Ness Marathon (oct, 5th). I gained a personal best for Loch Ness, finishing in 4hrs 4 mins and 9 secs! In 2009 I will be running the Paris Marathon, the London Marathon, and others! The costume comes out for London!
There is a serious side to this. Every DAY in the UK Six Teenagers are diagnosed with cancer. That's Six today, Six tomorrow, Six the next. These kids need special care, They're mostly too old for childrens wards, and too young for adult wards, and there's a desperate shortage of cash. Specialist units are required, and as some of these young people are in hospital for weeks or months, and giving these units a few extras to make life more comfortable can really make a difference.
At Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow, a unit is currently being refurbished, and TCT want to get a new unit built, and we need £350,000 THIS Year, to do it! So I'm asking for your help!
These young people are our kids, They didn't choose cancer, it chose them. Lets do something good today, lets make a difference, in anyway we can.
Please sponsor me now.
The gauntlet is thrown down. If you can think of an event, running related or otherwise, that can help me to make a difference to those who didn't get to choose, drop me a line. If you think it'll raise cash, tell me what it is. whether it's crossing the Gobi desert on a fish, or climbing the eiffel tower dressed as a gorilla, if you'll sponsor me, I'll try it (no promises at this stage, desert loving fish are in short supply)
Thanks for reading this, go on, help us out with this, I'd really appreciate it
