UPDATE 20TH OCTOBER: Well I did it - and enjoyed it! Thanks very much everyone for your generous donations to two very good causes.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
The money I will raise will be split between MedEquip4Kids and FC United of Manchester.
MedEquip4Kids supports children's health projects across the North West. They are FC United's charity of the year.
FC United is a fans-owned football club. It 'starred' in the recent film 'Looking for Eric'. The club will put its share of the sponsor money towards a new football stadium planned for the most deprived area of Manchester. This will become the focal point for FC's substantial community work, especially with young people.
The 5.8 km run will be a challenge and I am getting into training for it.
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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
So please dig deep and donate now.
