It costs Martin House £22,000 per day to operate and do the amazing work they do for families, like they did for mine. Ever since Alex passed away in 2010 we have been raising money for Martin House. And this year would have been Alex’s 9th birthday, so I am making it my MISSION to raise enough money to run Martin House for a day!
I have, in collaboration with my husband, committed to running 20 marathons between us, that's 524 miles which is almost the length of the country, and that’s not including our training! Starting in November 2019 we will be running a number of organised events, some routes of our own, finishing on the August bank holiday in 2020 where we will start our final marathon, The Alex Clayton Memorial Marathon, departing from Martin House in Wetherby and finishing at our families annual fundraising event in Bradford in time to join in the fun!
