Story

Some of you may know I am currently in training to run the Edinburgh Marathon. Yes a full marathon that is 26.2 miles.

I am doing this for a cause close to my heart. I am running this marathon in aid of Cool Earth. My aim is to help raise awareness and funds for this charitable cause. I want people to think about the world that surrounds us and how we take so much for granted. I feel in today’s day and age we use so much of the Earth’s resources and give very little if anything back. Did you know an area of rainforest the size of a football pitch is being destroyed every second! And that rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now covers only 6%. Experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years. So please be generous by supporting my run and give what you can to help save the rainforests and the indigenous people and animals that inhabit it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. My main aim is to get people to take responsibility for their actions and think about how it impact the environment and this beautiful planet we inhabit.
