'We're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time' - Ryan Sinclair Mitchell. 
We lost Ryan last year, Lauren's brother, my brother-in-law, father, husband, son and friend to many. 
Ryan was a great friend and influence on me, so much so, one evening after a number of drinks, he convinced me to sign up to run a marathon!! Next thing I know, I'm running the Tunbridge Wells half marathon, and the competitive streak in both of us meant it became winner takes all!! This was to be our spring board to run 'the London marathon together.'
The dream of running it together is no longer, so I am running the marathons in his memory, with his good friend Vincent.
This has given me every incentive in preparation for the Tunbridge Wells Half (In February - now completed in1hr52) and London Marathon's (in April) this year.
I will be running for two Charities. 
Firstly, the Pickering Cancer Drop in Centre in Tunbridge Wells. They provided an invaluable outlet to Ryan and his family whilst undergoing treatment.
Secondly, Vinehall School, where Ryan worked, were extremely supportive during Ryan's illness. They are constructing the Mitchell Cricket Pavilion (one of Ryan's great passions) and it would be fitting if some of the money raised could help towards it's construction.
The funds are going to a couple of great causes, please feel free to donate. 
Many Thanks

The Pickering Cancer Drop-in Centre
Total raised: £1824.30

Pickering were extremely kind and generous to Ryan and Lindsey, and it would be great to give something back to them. Most people are affected by cancer during their lives and many find this a traumatic and lonely experience. Pickering aim to help and support anyone going through the emotional upset of cancer, from diagnosis onwards,

Vinehall School Limited
Total raised: £2457.90

Ryan was a staff member at vinehall school, and he thoroughly enjoyed everything surrounding the school from the ethos, his fellow staff and especially the pupils. The school is constructing a cricket pavilion in his name, and it would be great if we could make a donation through running4ryan.
