My story

[p]I am about to try and convince YOU to sponsor ME and PAUL to complete the Hamburg Ironman:[/p][p]SWIM: 2.4 mile (open water), BIKE: 112 miles, RUN: 26 miles, a full marathon!![/p][p]We are running for THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRUST and ADDENBROOKE'S hospital, as you may or may not know my daughter, (and Paul's curry cooking buddy) Amalie has Cystic Fibrosis, this is a terminal disease that attacks the lungs and the pancreas. A lot of medication is required, over 50 tablets and 2 lengthy physio sessions daily just to try to keep her healthy... [u]currently there is no cure[/u]![/p][p]Anyway, I could waffle on for hours, but hearing your daughter describe the day she found out about her life expectancy to a film crew was a really, really tough thing to hear, and probably the most heartfelt way to get you to sponsor us, here's a link to that interview... she's a very tough cookie, she has to be![/p][p]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtatLl1z1i0[/p][p]Anything you can give would be really appreciated[/p][p]Thanks[/p]
