Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I have now completed the run, but the page is still open for donations.
It was arduous running for 8 hours and 25 minutes in -41c and a head wind, but rewarding.
This is the challenge of a lifetime and it is the result of my daughter having ME since September 2008. I have seen firsthand how damaging ME can be to a person’s life, their prospects and their family.
In addition to my daughters condition, in October 2012 I had a heart scare that resulted in me having a pace maker fitted. This affected my fitness, training and outlook on life. When that sort of life changing event occurs we all take a good look at our lives and decide what is important to us. For me it was my family and I decided there and then to do something that would help all families who struggle with ME / CFS. This will make me the first person to run the North Pole marathon with a pace maker.
So please dig deep and donate now.
