Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be running the inaugural Brighton Marathon on 18th April 2010 in support of REMF - Sussex Charity of the Year 2009

Here's the best part, I will be running the marathon dressed in a Gorilla costume/Brighton & Hove Albion shirt combo... all 26 miles of it.

The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund (REMF) was born out of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York City.

Robert Eaton, a lifelong Brighton and Hove Albion fan tragically lost his life in the disaster. Rob was a regular user of North Stand Chat, and Albion supporters and NSC Users decided to set up the fund in his memory, raising money for disadvantaged young people in the UK and abroad who wish to play football, but find it difficult to do so without help.

The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund has raised over £40,000 so far, and bought kit and equipment for Los Peladitos, a youth football team in Rob Eaton's adopted city of New York

REMF also supports Coaching for Hope, raising AIDS awareness in West Africa through football training initiatives.

Locally, REMF has donated money to Seagulls Specials, the Brighton and Hove Albion disability football project, allowing disabled youngsters to enjoy the simple pleasure of playing football.

The charity has also paid for kit and equipment for cash strapped youth football teams in Sussex and Croydon.

 

Thanks to everyone who gives, your donation means a lot

Kind Regards,

Stephen
