Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

50 in 52 is my personal challenge to run 50 ultramarathons in 2012. As well as running a minimum of a 28 mile Ultra each week, 3 races must be at least 100 mile's plus and 4 x 50 mile plus races must be included. All Races will be recorded on my blog http://jsteeles50in52.blogspot.com/

I intend to raise as much money as I can for the

 International Rescue Corps  http://www.intrescue.org/

The International Rescue Corps is a volunteer organization involved in disaster rescue, based in Scotland. It is an independent (i.e. non-governmental funded) United Nations registered disaster rescue service. Being a charity, the IRC is supported entirely by donations from the public and sponsorship from industry. IRC members are unpaid volunteers and all the IRC's services are provided free of charge - the Corps' aim is purely to save life.

The Corps was formed in 1981 in the aftermath of a major Italian earthquake and became operational in 1985; it has since undertaken numerous missions at home and across the world. In many cases, missions are co-operative efforts working alongside other agencies both nationally and internationally.

Over the last 25 years IRC has undertaken a variety of work both in the UK and abroad.Overseas missions include several earthquakes, hurricanes and subsequent floods, mudslides and logistical / aid work, whilst UK missions include gas explosions, train crashes, highline rescues, missing person searches and floods.

So please dig deep and donate now.
