Welcome to my page to raise awareness and donations for MIND. In memory of my Dad, Oliver Killeen I’ll be running the London marathon on April the 13th. I’d be grateful if you could show your support by sponsoring me!
Not being a bird who does things by half I’ve embarked on two more fundraising events which will appeal to my friends and family…
1) My abject humiliation at 14,000 feet
Tandem skydive...done and dusted on Monday 24 March! Unfortuntaly due to the fact it was snowing when I did the jump I don't have a DVD for you all to have a laugh at! Thanks to all my lovely friends who called me up prior to the event to say goodbye and wind me up!!!!!!! I managed not to wet / soil myself so it's true...miracles do happen!
2) Black Tie Charity Auction
Date will be May 2008 (precise date and London venue TBC). The evening will be hosted by the delightful Razor Ruddock’s, and the spectacular LA Bartenders will be showing off their flaring talents. Fear not Northern contingency I’ll ensure Boddingtons will be on draught! Get ready to pencil a date into your diaries.
On a serious note those who had the honour of meeting my Dad know that he was a wonderful, generous, caring man. Always putting others before himself. Too proud to tell anyone he was in so much turmoil. I truly hope that the money you kindly donate will help MIND reach out to those in need of support. Depression is a cancer of the mind, it is an illness that needs understanding and treatment. It claims the lives of 50 times more young men than Aids and three times more than ALL class A drugs combined. So dig deep and SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!!
I know that Dad will be willing me on when I’m running the marathon, which is a good thing because lets face it…..I’m going to need all the help I can get!! Do feel free to come along on the day to cheer me on. I’ll be the one near the back looking knackered.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Mind - The Mental Health Charity will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
Please sponsor me now! Those of you that are Southern have the opportunity to prove you’re not tight b*stards!
