Mark Allison - Run Geordie Run

Charity

The Childrens Foundation
Our vision is for the health and wellbeing of children and young people in North East England to be the best in the UK. We fund research so we can help to cure sick children and prevent them from becoming ill. We also investigate lifestyle issues which we hope will lead to better long-term outcomes for children in the region. We support NHS projects including the Great North Children's Hospital with our campaign to include the latest technology in the wards to make the time spent in hospital as comfortable and stress-free as possible for children and their families. We manage partnership projects which deliver practical, researched interventions to help children with disabilities or mental health issues and to promote the importance of child safety. We aim to make North East children and ultimately children in the UK Happy, Healthy and Safe.

Run Geordie Run - 2600 miles across Australia

Fundraiser: 
Mark Allison - Run Geordie Run

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/rungeordierun

Thank you for stopping by my donations page. I am an ultra distance runner and fundraiser having run 874 miles from John O'Groats to Lands End in 2007 raising £34,108 and then 3100 miles across the USA raising £105,322 in 2011. 

Starting on October 16th 2013 I will be setting off from Perth Western Australia on a 2600 mile run to Bondi Beach in Sydney. This journey will take 70 days to complete, finishing on Christmas Eve 2013.

Details of my training, the actual run itself and all the tomfoolery that goes with it can be found on www.rungeordierun.com.

The run across Australia has a very high degree of difficulty and risk. I will be running across some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet many miles from any major town or city. With that in mind, I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me. Any donation made, in aid of The Children's Foundation, no matter how large or small, will be greatly appreciated. 

Having seen first hand some of projects funded by The Children's Foundation, rest assured that your donation will be well used to help ensure the happiness, health and safety of many children in the North East of England.

Thanks in anticipation of your kind support. 

All the best!
Mark Allison (Run Geordie Run)
