Why we need your help

Neil Burgess is setting out to run another Brighton Marathon to raise funds for LIFEbeat for the 3rd year in a row! 

Neil is planning to run 26.2 miles on April 15th in order to help raise funds and allow LIFEbeat to bring more young people to our transformative summer programs. 

As a charity we are consistently amazed by the fundraising challenges people take on to help us. Without this dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t be able to offer our programs to young people who are unable to afford the full cost. Around 95% of young people attending our summer camps come from disadvantaged backgrounds and wouldn’t be able to fund their place on a summer program without financial assistance. At LIFEbeat, we have never turned a young person away based on ability to pay.

We’re so grateful for this amazing act of dedication and hard work. After his 2017 run, we asked Neil to give us some insight into what it takes to run a marathon:

“After training hard for 4 months, nothing could have prepared me for the 72 degrees humidity that Sunday morning.  I left my running cap in the room and knew I would be struggling before I crossed the start line.

15 miles in my wife Sue managed to get a cap to me and I ran another 6 miles before the pain really kicked in.  2 miles of walking, before I collected my thoughts and got going. The crowds spurred me on and I knew I had to finish. 5 hours 13 mins later I was over the finish line and straight into the recovery tent.

It was tough, but for some reason, just a few hours later I had signed up for next year, so I'm back on the start line this April 15th!”

Show your gratitude and support for Neil by making a donation to LIFEbeat's crucial work with young people.
