Story

"THANK YOU for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!"

I am doing a really crazy challenge this time, even more so than normal (as I haven't done enough training) .... I am running...

............169 miles across and up the Grand Canyon!!.

It is a self sufficient run consisting of six stages over seven days. The first day starts with a gentle 30 miler, with my rucksack at its heaviest (about 10kg including water)! The long stage is 52 miles and I will be running alot on sand!

As most of you know, I am doing this with a back that isn't up to much, as it has a disc missing, as well as a herniated disc, as well as 3 compressed nerve roots, thanks to a paragliding accident in 2008. But why should that stop me?  ...umm...anyway, here I go again doing something daft all because I like the challenge!

You may think because I do an event each year, there is no need to keep sponsoring me....

HOWEVER, YOUR support means everything to me, and it is vital that Shelterbox still recieves your help, because without it they could not provide shelter for those in remote areas who have lost everything.  It is hard for us to visualise this, but if you had everything whipped away from you and someone offered YOU a lifeline to help you start over, anyway,I don't need to continue - but YOUR support does...Please, please continue to sponsor my daft runs in aid of SHELTERBOX
