My story

[p]Hello! Click here to [url=https://signup.com/go/DiLngbL]Sign up[/url]![/p][p]I will be turning 40 this year and to celebrate this milestone, I have organised the ‘40 for 40’ event, which will see me run 40 miles in one effort. Last year, I had a family member in the USA pass away from complications of MS. The charity is therefore close to home for me and so in commemoration, along with running 40 miles, I am raising £1000 for MS research via the MS Society charity. Raising money and awareness for MS myself is great, but I’m motivated to get a bigger community involved. [/p][p]That’s where you come in! [/p][p]I want to share this experience to get other people running and so I was over the moon when my employer, Perfectus Biomed offered to donate for every mile ran by others, in support of [url=http://www.woundcare4heroes.org.uk/]Wound Care 4 Heroes[/url]. This challenges me to promote the event enough to raise the number of miles ran to really increase the fund raising! [/p][p]I am inviting anybody who would like to take part in this challenge to join me for any point along the 40-mile route. I have put together below suggested routes to choose from, consisting of a 5k, 10k, two half-marathon routes and, for those of us who would much rather support from the side-lines, a more ‘friendly’ finish mile. Each portion begins and ends at the same location, [url=https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g190764-d3138170-Reviews-The_Red_Lion_Pub-Warrington_Cheshire_England.html]The Red Lion pub[/url] in Warrington, so there’s always the option to support from inside the pub with a burger and a beer![/p][p][url=https://footpathapp.com/routes/FF9FEB34-9D14-4D03-AF1B-CB7D969D977B][i]5K route[/i][/url][i] [/i][url=https://footpathapp.com/routes/115B2C3C-F495-414A-9241-D466B4D07017][i]10K route[/i][/url][i] [/i][url=https://footpathapp.com/routes/1ACA9718-CFF6-4865-88AF-D648A582C70D][i]Half Marathon (1)[/i][/url][i] [/i][url=https://footpathapp.com/routes/0D249E42-5E8C-48A2-AC16-189D3D71AC58][i]Half Marathon (2)[/i][/url][/p][p]The run will kick-off from [url=https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g190764-d3138170-Reviews-The_Red_Lion_Pub-Warrington_Cheshire_England.html]The Red Lion[/url] pub in Warrington on Saturday 6th July 2019 at 8:00am. Everybody is welcome (even the non-runners) as we would love all your support! Please [url=https://signup.com/go/DiLngbL]Sign up[/url] if interested. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Thank you to all for your support so far!![/b][/p][p][b]If you have any questions, please contact me at: 40for40ken@gmail.com[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][i]"If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”[/i][/p][p][br][/p]
