Hi all!

 

We four are running the Virgin London Marathon to raise money for a very worthwhile cause- Scope. This charity campaign tirelessly to create a world where disabled people have the same opportunities to fulfil their life ambitions as non-disabled people, and are committed to creating a better society for everyone.

 

Being disabled ourselves, we recognise Scope’s efforts in this, and in our small way we are going to compete on an equal footing with tens of thousands of other entrants by taking part in the London Marathon. By finishing this, we hope to fulfil a life-time ambition as well as to raise a significant amount of money for Scope.

 

Being good sports, we have decided to let you, the public, decide what we are going to wear in this race! The more money that gets contributed, the greater the chance of us being attired in a variety of ludicrous and not-so-fetching outfits. It wouldn’t be fair for you all to not be able to make an informed choice about what amounts we would like to raise in order for us to wear certain costumes- so here it is… 

 

£0-£5,740 - normal clothes

£5,740 - £6,150 - superman/batman with capes

£6,150- £6,560 - 118 118 Advert Men

£6,560 - £6,970 - wonderwoman

£6,970 - £7,380 - sexy cheerleader outfit

£7,380 - £7,790 - blue smurfs (painted in blue but wear white shorts)

£7,790 - £12,300 - banana

Special outfit - £12,300 upwards - female swimming suits

 

Our only saving grace is that any increased embarrassment from wearing such outfits will be more than outweighed at our pride in raising larger amounts for Scope. Our attire may be a laughing matter, but the level of inequality that many disabled people face in society is certainly not…

 

So please dig deep, have a good chuckle at our outfits come marathon day, and rest easy knowing that you have made the lives of others significantly better through your donation. And you get to have fun in the bargain- what more could you want?!

 

Thank you for looking at our virgin money giving page and a even greater thank you for any donations you make. They are sincerely appreciated and we’ll be thinking of you all on the start line come April 2011!’
