My story

[p]I will be running the London Marathon on 22nd April in aid of the RNLI (lifeboats). Any donations, large or huge, will be greatly welcomed and will help the RNLI to continue providing their life-saving service. I'm "only" volunteering to run 26.2 miles for the RNLI. The volunteer crews put themselves forward to go out in all weather, at a moment's notice, for the benefit of whoever needs their help. It could be to save anyone from the crew of a ship to a beach goer who has got into trouble. Let's make sure that they have the equipment at their disposal to continue doing so.[/p][p]I hope none of us ever need to call on the RNLI, but I sure am glad that they're there in case we do.[/p][p]I feel that this is a cause worthy donating my time to, and hopefully, your money, so let me feel the fibre of your fabric.[/p][p][b]Statistics:[/b][/p][p]Years spent trying to get a place in the London Marathon ballot: 9[/p][p]Training since: November 2017[/p][p]Time that I will have spent running by April 22nd: 81 hours (approx.)[/p][p]Distance that I will have run by April 22nd: 543 miles (approx.)[/p][p]Amount raised by selling personal belongings: £1,400[/p][p][br][/p][p]I have been out there in all conditions, throughout the winter, preparing for this challenge. Believe me, it hasn't been much fun and I would have rather stayed indoors on many an occasion, but I won't let my supporters down. I know that money is a scarce resource and I truly appreciate your donation.[/p]
