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.

My Fundraising page
Here I am again! My 4th London Marathon raising awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis and the National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society, NASS. Once again I'll be running in my trademark orange skeleton Morph suit!
It will be HOT!
It will be STUFFY!
It will be PAINFUL!
But it's all for a GREAT CAUSE!
I know many of you have sponsored me before and I thank you very much but I'm going to keep on doing this for as long as my bones will allow me to!
If you are able to donate, that's faNASStic but if not, don't wory, just spread the word about this very painful, debilitating condition (I'm a sufferer so I know first hand what it's like) and let's try to get the 7-8 year diagnosis time reduced by making doctors, physios, in fact everyone aware that this form of chronic arthritis is more common than MS. It often goes undiagnosed until it's too late to stop the fusion in the spine, hips, knees, rib cage etc!
Thanks for visting my page. Every penny of your donation will reach NASS!
