Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 20th April 2012 I will be taking part in a race called JOGLE - running 868 miles from John O'Groats to Lands End in 16 days.  The typical daily distance is 58 miles.  THATS MORE THAN TWO MARATHONS A DAY FOR 16 DAYS!! 

Currently only 3 people have completed this tough event and a woman has yet to finish.  This is by far my biggest challenge to date and I know I will have to dig deeper than I have ever done before if I am to achieve my goal.

I am running to raise money for Coco.  Coco is a registered international childrens charity working on closely monitored education and healthcare initiatives that make a big difference to the lives of children living in poverty throughout the developing world.  I work on the board of Coco and its a charity that means a lot to me.

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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
