Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In May 2018 I will attempt to run The Dales Way - an 82mile route from Windermere (Cumbria) to Ilkley (Yorkshire) -- in under 20 hours.

I am doing this because in 2001 I lost my Mother to Lung Cancer, and before that my Father to Cancer in 1997. As I watched them suffer, with very little complaint, I was struck with how indiscriminate the illness is and how it can expose our own helplessness. I want to complete this run to honour, in some small way, their own grace and grit, and to support the research of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. I also want to show my four and half year old daughter that you can achieve anything when you plan, prepare and dedicate yourself to something.

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.
