Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit the MediCinema Marathon Men JustGiving page.

We are a team of musicians, artists, animators and filmmakers with a shared goal... to complete the 26.2m Brighton marathon for MediCinema in April 2011.

It all began one Sunday morning when Theo's dad showed him an advert in a paper for a job with registered charity MediCinema. "Here you go son, give these people a ring".

So after a couple emails and phone calls Theo & Leo met at Bafta in London with Christine Hill (MBE) founder of MediCinema. It wasn't until after the meeting when we had retired to the bar that Christine asked us if we wanted to run the Brighton Marathon to raise money for MediCinema... so with charity in our hearts and pints in our hands we agreed to run our first marathon! Two further meetings in a pub and a swimming pool gave rise to a team of five as we convinced a further three runners come on board!

The team: 

Leo Altarelli: Musician and Filmmaker 

Theo Godley: Filmmaker and Artist

Matt Kinsella: Musician and Filmmaker

Matt Pescod: Musician and Surfer

Kristian Andrews: Animator and barefoot running champ

We are all first time marathon runners and we hope you can show your support by donating to MediCinema, a truly worthy cause:

"MediCinema enriches the quality of life for patients young and old, including those in beds and wheelchairs, by installing state-of-the-art cinemas in hospitals to bring the magic of the movies to them, their families and carers."

Thanks
