My story

[p]UPDATE - [b]We only went and took an hour off Gav's PB! 4hrs 27mins for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019!!!!![/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]This April I will be rising to the challenge to raise money for Wooden Spoon, and supporting young people who are blind and visually impaired.[/p][p][br][/p][p]To start the month I will be running the Vienna City Marathon, and trying to break the “magical” three hour barrier. Then three weeks later I will be guiding Gavin who is deafblind at the Virgin Money London Marathon.[/p][p][br][/p][p]In the build-up, Gavin and I will be completing the Olympic Park Half Marathon and the London Landmarks Half Marathon. And because that’s not enough, I’ll also be completing the Vitality Big Half as a guide for my other running partner Victor. Bringing the total distance to 91.7miles, plus hundreds more in training.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Gavin is raising money for Guide Dogs, so the money that I raise will also be used by Wooden Spoon’s London Committee to help young people from London affected by sight-loss.[/p][p][br][/p][p]It costs more than £50,000 to provide a visually impaired person with a guide dog. The final stage of training – bringing together the trained dog and their owner costs £3,300 so Gavin and I are aiming to raise that much between us.[/p]
