Story

UPDATE: I've completed the London Marathon! I ran all 26.3 miles in 5 hours 49 minutes. Thanks for sponsoring so far, and do keep giving - I'll be accepting donations for some while yet!

Hey guys,

Thanks for coming to my donation page. The rhinos, as well as myself, need your help!

I've agreed to run the London Marathon. All 26.3 miles of it. It's a bit foolish of me really, but the good part is that I'm doing it for Save The Rhino, a charity that helps conserve endangered rhino species in Africa and Asia.

I wanted to support a deserving charity that would really benefit from any donations I can help raise. Despite having only five full time members of staff in the UK, it supports 15 conservation projects worldwide, and currently protects 126,000 km² of land in Africa to help keep the black rhino (of which only 4,240 remain) and other species from going extinct. For a charity of its size, it's does an awful lot.

Any donation you can give - even just a few quid – would not only be a huge help towards paying my way for a marathon place, but will do a lot of good for charity as well.

If you are a UK tax payer (which is most of you, I'm sure) please remember to add Gift Aid on top. JustGiving accepts PayPal as well as most cards for quick and easy donations.

Thanks!

~ Matthew
