My story

[p][/p][lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]12 Marathons challenge! So alongside my street work, shows and events, canvas paintings and illustrations I am currently in the midst of my year long running marathons challenge, where i am tasking on 12 marathons / ultra marathons in order to raise money and awareness for a very special and small charity that works hands on, with rescued orangutans with International Animal Rescue in Kalimantan, Indonesia. OVAID ( Orangutan Veterinary Aid - Nigel and Sarah ) volunteer huge chunks of their year to travel to Indonesia and give Veterinary aid and medical care to the rescued Orangutans that have been left vulnerable from the constant and extensive deforestation. For small charities and organisations such as this, they desperately need funds, and the money has a tangible and real effect on the work they do, and not get swallowed up in a huge pot and not used directly to help. To highlight the idea of changing landscapes f the Orangutan i am running 12 marathons this year 1 every month and creating art based on the changing landscapes I see in my runs through the season,s hopefully culminating with a gallery show at the end of the year or early 2016 where i'll exhibit some of the paintings from the year![lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]I have completed 5 marathons so far, with my next tough trail / mountain Marathon on June 20th in Snowdonia, Wales! [lt]/div[gt] [lt]div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;"[gt]I have a Virgin Money giving donation page which you can donate money to OVAID directly ( nb: this does NOT fund my marathon trips and costs etc ) So any donations would be very gratefully received![lt]/div[gt] 12 Marathons challenge!
