Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
It is now January and i have decided i finally need to get into gear and start raising money for the great cause that is, Leukaemia Research!!
as you all know (because i havent stopped banging on about it!!) it was only 8 weeks ago i found out i had a place in the London Marathon 2010 and promotly started training :)!!!! with now just 16 weeks to go the 'real' training begins; so thank you in advance for all of your words of encouragement and offers to come running with me!! ahem!!
On a serious note Leukaemia Research is the only charity in the UK dedicated exclusively to researching blood cancers and disorders including leukaemia, Hodgkin’s and other lymphomas, and myeloma. Anyone, at any age can be diagnosed with a blood cancer. 24,500 people in the UK are diagnosed every year. We are committed to giving every one of them the best chance of survival. They need to raise more than £100 million over the next five years to sustain investment and as they receive no Government grants the life-saving research depends entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising!
As you all know i work for Royal Garden Hotel, and they are supporting the Big 5-0 campaign which sees the hotel set a target of £50,000 to raise in 2010. Hence why i 'volunteered' to run the marathon (someone had to do it)!
I know now is not the most ideal of timings but please support me and Leukaemia Research in any way you can. It really is much appreciated!!
I ill keep you all updated on my running progress (and injuries!)
Lots of love,
