Hi, I'm Alan Williamson - you may know me from Five out of Ten, or just good old-fashioned friendship.
Last year, my friend Marko and I ran the Oxford Half Marathon, raising over £900. This year I'm running alone, over twice the distance, in a country whose language I only vaguely understand. Your donations will motivate me to push through the wall, over the finish line, and probably into the nearest beer hall. This will be my first trip to Germany - I assume they are everywhere?
Your donation will support two fantastic charities:
SpecialEffect are based in Oxfordshire and work to improve the lives of children with disabilities through videogames. They're lovely folks and the work they do is incredible.
Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
On behalf of SpecialEffect and Mind, thank you so much for your support! 
Bonus donation incentive: if I raise over £2000, I'll run the marathon dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog. Seriously.
Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
