Story

Ok.... So i'm running from London to Brighton. I know crazy! On the 23 May 2015 I will take part in the London2Brighton Ultra Marathon a distance of 100k (62.5 miles) and I will be raising funds for The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation (JTYAF)

As i am doing this i thought i would do it for a good cause. Lt John ‘JT’ Thornton RM, from Ferndown, Dorset, was tragically killed in southern Afghanistan on 30th March 2008. John achieved an incredible amount in his short but amazing life.  He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, flew with the Red Arrows, travelled across New Zealand, qualified as a sky diver and worked in both Iraq and Afghanistan as an Officer in the Royal Marines.

After his tragic death, his parents (Peter and Linda Thornton) set up the JTYAF in his memory. The aim of the foundation is to support young people in a wide range of youth organisations and provides them with scholarships to support their personal development and the pursuit of their ambitions.


So don't be tight support the cause a £1 each would be good, £10 would be even better...


Seriously every little bit helps. 


Many thanks! i suppose i best get running.
