My story

[p][span=color: #ff0000;][b]UPDATE: I AM PLEASED TO ADVISED THAT I COMPLETED THE PARIS MARATHON ON 12TH APRIL IN [lt]span style="color: #0000ff;"[gt]3 HOURS 50 MINS and 27 SECS[/span]. THIS WAS A 25 MIN IMPROVEMENT ON MY PREVIOUS BEST MARATHON IN 2014.[/b][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #ff0000;][b]MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SPONSORED AND SUPPORTED ME TO HELP RASIE MONEY FOR DISABLED KIDS CHARITY "[lt]span style="color: #0000ff;"[gt]KIDS GET GOING[/span]"[/b][lt]/span[gt][/p][p]For 2015 I am raising money for [b][span=color: #ff0000;]Kids Get Going![/span][/b] by entering the [b][span=color: #800080;]PARIS MARATHON[/span][/b] which takes place on [b][span=color: #800080;]12th April 2015[/span].[/b][b][/b][/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]Kids Get Going! is a charity that helps and supports disabled young athletes achieve their dreams, by providing them the funding and support them need to pursue their sport.[/span][/b][/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]It also helps to provides manual wheelchairs for children to use every day; at home, at school, and to enable them to play with their friends. These are our wonderful athletes of the future! I believe that all disabled children and young people should receive the right equipment to get them going![/span][/b][/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]Get Kids Going! gives disabled children and young people the chance of a life time, freedom, and many wonderful opportunities that you and I take for granted. Opportunities they may never have without you and the help of Get Kids Going! No other charity in Britain focuses on helping disabled children and young people with sport in the same way. Read more about this great charity at [lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]http://www.getkidsgoing.com/aboutus.htm[/span][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p][p]Apart from raising money for this great charity, my personal aim for the race is to [b][span=color: #0000ff;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]complete the marathon in under 4hrs[/span].[lt]/span[gt] [/b][/p][p]I have run 2 London Marathons to date, and quickest time so far is 4hrs 15min. So I only have to knock 15 mins off my previous best, how hard can that be ? [/p][p][b]So with your support I hope we can “Get Kids [span=background-color: #ffffff;]Going[/span]” and get myself over the finish line in under 4 hours.[/b][/p][p][span=background-color: #ffffff;][lt]span style="color: #ff0000;"[gt]I am glad to be running the event with 4 (was 5 !) other work collegues from HSBC. Hope to have some support on the day, so if your fancy a day in Paris in the Spring, why not pop over for the day ?[/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=background-color: #ffffff;][lt]span style="color: #ff0000;"[gt][b]HSBC WILL MATCH ALL DONATIONS UP TO £500, SO IF YOU DONATE £10 THE CHARITY WILL BENEFIT TO THE TUNE OF £20 !![/b][/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p]I will update this page periodically with training updates as well as my infamous [b]“Training Toe Nails”[/b] pictures as well as other injury related stuff (I always have injuries) , so check back to see how my efforts are progressing and the current toe nail count ([span=text-decoration: underline;]it currently stands at 8[/span])[/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/i][/p]
