Thanks for taking the time to get this far!
I decided that it's high time I stopped thinking about the many reasons to start running and actually put my trainers on... And what better motivation than signing yourself up for a marathon?
I'm running the Brighton Marathon for myself and for Transform Housing and Support. The running bit is for me, and the money that I'll hopefully raise is for Transform. I am a very lucky individual, in that when thing go a bit pear-shaped in my life, I have a fantastic safety net of support from all my friends and family, and other understanding members of the community. Unfortunately, not everyone has such fortunate circumstances, and when things go awry for them, they find themselves in a very vulnerable position. Transform is a charity that works in Surrey to help such individuals, who may have nowhere else to go. They provide safe homes and one-to-one support to help vulnerable individuals rebuild their lives and give them another chance to get back on track. Your donation will help them achieve this, so thank you so much for your support.
I know that there are so many causes to donate to, and people are emailing sponsorship forms left, right and centre, so ANY donation that you can spare, however small, will be much appreciated. Even if it's just the equivalent of that morning cup of coffee from the cafe round the corner, or a bottle of coke in a service station :)
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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
