Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Whizz-Kidz provides disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods.

I am supporting and raising funds for WhizzKidz to help more children get a fantastic start in life. 

Like a duck, they are only hindered by the environment that does not allow them to excel. Add wheels, and like they are like a duck to water.

So, I shall run dressed as a duck! I have a few events lined up and I am inspired to do this for wonderful young people like Ruby.

See how getting "new wheels" helped Ruby!

You can help make that difference to a life.


I have made things tough for myself but hopefully inspire you to donate even just the cost of a decent cuppa! I have entered 7 challenges.  

21st December Longest Night Challenge 

This is 12 hour Waddlethon on a Dreadmill at Reading's TNT Gym.  

18th March 2018 Reading Half Marathon

With 3JFitness, with the ladies I coach, I shall be Nordic walking the Reading Half Marathon with them.  

22nd April 2018 London Marathon

This will be the first marathon I have entered and despite my history of endurance event, this will be one of the toughest things I have set myself up for! I really don't like this distance! But I have waited 8 years to get this place and it's a dream come true. To make it tougher, I'll be in the ducksuit!

9th June, Endure24 ReadingNordic walk and run, aiming for 60 miles in 24 hours.

30th June,  Endure24 LeedsNordic walk aiming 60 miles in 24 hours.

28th July, Round Reading Ultra, Nordic walk, with time cut offs, and to complete in 13 hours. 

24th August,  T100 This is 100 miles from the Thames Barrier to Goring, with the pressure of time cut offs. This has to be completed in 32 hours - or boom, game over! This is a self sufficient race; so no support with food transportation, baggage transfer..nothing! I carry everything on my back.

That's 4 marathons in a day and a half! NON STOP!Here's the game plan changer!

If I raise £5,000 I shall up my game and run the full  T184, 184 miles along the Thames from the Thames barrier to Thames source.

That's 7 marathons in 72 hours, unsupported!



Let's raise the smiles by sponsoring my miles! Start now and let's get the Duck back out there!





I have also created the Lucky Duck Races which is a human powered virtual duck race on the 13th January. Read more at www.luckyduckraces.com. Please do take part in that and be part of the miles of smiles to making a child happy with their brand new wheel chair.
