You are probably here because I have pestered you into sponsoring me, or you have met me in a pub and I have written this web address on your arm. Either way; Thanks for getting this far!
Bascially I am running for three main reasons. Firstly, The British Heart Foundation are amazing people, helping to keep us fit and healthy, caring for us when we are less so, and researching why things go wrong. And things often go wrong. Research and care cost a staggering amount of money, so while I still can, I am going to get off my arse and help them fundraise.
The second reason is that like I said, things often go wrong. Life can deal us horrible blows; and hearts are fragile things. Most of us, almost without exception, will know and love someone who has, or will develop, heart problems. My own family, and many that I care for are no different. So are yours. I guess that anything I can do to help the British Heart Foundation must therefore be a good thing.
And finally, and personally, hearts get broken. Perhaps this is my way of mending one. (Please feel free ignore this last bit..)
So, down to the nitty gritty, donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.
I know things are tight for everyone right now, but if the idea of me trying to run round a muddy field in the rain makes you smile, cough up your cash! And, "thank you." From the bottom of my heart, and that of the British Heart Foundation.
