My story

[p][b][u]Five fundraisers for my first life savers…[/u][/b][/p][p][b][u]Fourth Leg - ‘real’ London Marathon on 3 October[/u][/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]London Marathon 2020 and 2021 plus 2 x Royal Parks Halves and 116 miles in 48 hrs in 2021 for the Capital's ‘best charity’ 🤞🏃4 🚁[/p][p]So,[/p][p](1) having dragged myself 'round London in torrential rain in October’s first ever Virtual (and my first) London Marathon, and [/p][p](2) having completed a very speedy (for me) Virtual Royal Parks Half Marathon on 11 April, and now [/p][p](3) having attempted a 116 mile walk in 48 hours over midsummer’s weekend (from and to the helipad at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, taking in other trauma centres and RAF Northolt - where the helicopter sleeps - with an informal team organised by the Charity’s CEO - I managed 103.5 miles (the second furthest of the 12 strong team before my feet fell apart) and one ‘machine’, the guy I’m hugging in front of the helicopter, managed the whole distance in the time (I finished the distance by hobbling over 13 miles in 3 days later that week) I now plan[/p][p](4) running the Marathon ‘proper’ in October, and completing with [/p][p](5) running another Royal Parks Half run (my third on the bounce) the week after that.[/p][p]Altogether, I have run over 3,900km (including over 25 half marathon distances and the Vitality Big Half Aug '21) and walked another 2,500km since the start of the first lockdown... [/p][p][url=https://www.strava.com/athletes/56766813]https://www.strava.com/athletes/56766813[/url][/p][p]I did/am doing it all in order to raise money for LAAC: the cause closest to my heart (head, lungs, pelvis and legs...) - who saved my life a decade ago when I was involved in a car v bike accident 200 yards from home when cycling back from work. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support (which so far has raised enough - with Giftaid - to fund over 12 missions by the helicopter) and thank you for any more donations. [/p][p]Your money will assist LAAC to continue to be able to provide critical care at the scene of serious accidents/incidents in the London area. Having celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2019, London's Air Ambulance (funded only through charitable donations) has helped 40,000+ people (including me). Help them to save many more lives! [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity's behalf.[/p]
