Story

You can just imagine, it's near the end of the summer, late in september. You've decided to go to London, do a bit of shopping, maybe a bit of sight seeing. Nice relaxing day in town, you walk down to the embankment and a GORILLA runs past!!! You take a second look and see theres more than one!  There's HUNDREDS, hopefully a 1000.

You think hang on did I get off the tube at the wrong station!! Was that the Planet of the Apes Station or was it Covent Garden (Sometimes difficult to tell in the summer months)  No Hang on there are Gorillas everywhere all running for charity.

I've never been a runner didn't think i ever would be but i started in february and i've got into it, then I came across a fun event that will be my FIRST ever sponsored run of any kind (excluding those old school ones) so although it's not that far (7km) it's going to be a big thing for me and i'm going to do it in a Gorilla Suit.  A big heavy incredibly HOT gorilla suit for a brilliant charity and a great goal.

So please dig deep and sponsor me. Maybe you could donate a days petrol money then I'll make the £400 in no time at all considering the cost of petrol at the moment.

I ask just one last favour, i've got some support in this run, my great Silverback dad has been roped in by me to run as well so go sponsor him as well and really show your support for this cause. you can find him here - www.justgiving.com/stevedeacon
