Thanks for visiting the Five out of Ten fundraising page! Alan and Marko are taking part in the Oxford Half Marathon on 12th October 2014. We are raising money for two great causes:

SpecialEffect work to improve the lives of people with disabilities by helping them to enjoy videogames. 

Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales, working for a better life for everyone with mental or emotional distress.

Your donations will make a huge difference to people's lives and will motivate us not to collapse in a ditch from exhaustion or clear off to the pub after the first 5k. Thank you so much for your support and don't forget to Gift Aid your donation if you pay tax in the UK.
