My story

[p]Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p]I'm doing the London Marathon this year and I hope you'll sponsor me to run it.[/p][p]This is the first time in my adult life I have done a sponsored event. So I know I've never pestered you for sponsorship money before. I have been nervously waiting to get a place for the London Marathon, and this is the year.[/p][p]The funds I raise will be given to BAFTA and spent on a number of activities to inspire creativity in disadvantaged children across the UK.[/p][p]One of the activities which is of particular interest to me is BAFTA children’s hospice screenings. I spent a bit of time in hospitals as a teenager and can vouch it's not enjoyable being ill. The opportunity to bring a little bit of normality and respite from medical treatment I'm sure is hugely valuable. [/p][p]Don't expect an amazing time from me. I recently found out the average Marathon pace is 4:23:27, so that seems like a good target to beat.[/p][p]You can follow my progress on Strava - [url=https://www.strava.com/athletes/22022203]https://www.strava.com/athletes/22022203[/url][/p][p]I really hope you can spare a few quid to support my run.[/p][p]Ben[/p]
