I'm running the Lisbon Half Marathon on March 22nd and am happy to accept sponsorship in the memory of Yemi Ogundoyin.
I didn't know him, but as his friends say he was the sort of guy who often made kind, thoughtful gestures to complete strangers, and I would like to make a gesture to honour his life. He was tragically killed in a car accident in January. The 23rd would have been his birthday, and there's going to be a party and fundraiser to celebrate his memory on March 21st:
Money all goes to the Sickle Cell Society, a charity that Yemi supported.
When you're all partying I'll be eating pasta and having an early night.
Give any amount you can afford - it all goes to a good cause. Don't have that last pint tonight (you know you don't need it) - donate £3 instead.
I'm hoping to complete the run in under 2 hours. Wish me luck
