Roddy's Marathon des Sables Adventure

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page


As some of you know I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the end of May 2008, after a work in progress getting back to a decent level of fitness I decided I was going to do something to raise as much awareness for diabetes that I could.

Before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes I was a International road cyclist.

Why did I pick the 2013 ?

Reason I chose the 2013 Marathon Des Sables is that if I can compete and race in the hardest foot race in the World to show that diabetes shouldn't be something to hold you back. At the same time hopefully raise money for two very important diabetes charities JDRF who are trying hard to find a cure for diabetes and Diabetes UK who raise awareness for diabetes!!


Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 28%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

So please dig deep and donate now.
