Helping people with Down's syndrome to live full and rewarding lives.
26 April 2015
The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. I'm running the London Marathon on 26th April 2015 to raise funds and awareness for the [b]Down's Syndrome Association (DSA)[/b] of which I am also a patron. I'm the proud father of two beautiful daughters Elsie & Isla and like any other parent have experienced many ups and downs through the early stages of the their young lives. When my eldest daughter Elsie (now 10 yrs old) was born she was diagnosed with Down's syndrome (DS). Through the early years of Elsie's life my family and I relied heavily on the volunteers and workers at the DSA for their invaluable support and help. The DSA have also helped, support and guided many other families in what can seem at times a daunting task of raising a child with DS. Elsie and Isla (9yrs old) are both wonderful little girls that bring so much joy and happiness to their friends and family. Any monies I receive will go straight to a wonderful charity and provide help and support to many families. Thank you in advance.

04.02.15 All the best Kevin for your challenge. I'm climbing Kilimanjaro next week to raise money and awareness for the DSA but it seems a bit strange to sponsor myself so seeing this I thought I'd donate through you instead :-)
