My story

[p]This is the fundraising page for David Hellard aka Beer Belly Running.[/p][p]Street Child is the most worthwhile charity I have come across - they help street children and build schools in the world's poorest and most ravaged countries. Add ontop of that there's an ebola outbreak and they need your money ASAP![/p][p]To give you an idea of where your money goes, here are some examples:[/p] [p]£1         Buys a child a pair of sandals.[/p] [p]£5         Buys a rucksack, exercise books, pens and pencils for school.[/p] [p]£15       Feeds a child twice a day for a month.[/p] [p]£40       Pays for a child to attend school for an entire year.[/p] [p]£100     Pays the monthly salary of a nurse or social worker.[/p] [p]£500     Funds a child from life on the street to life at home. This includes school fees, counselling, skills training, sanitary products, staff costs, and the small business grant their families can receive to help them set up on their own and support their own children.[/p] [p]£1000+ Funds the construction of a temporary class-room or mini-‘school’ in a rural[/p][p][/p][p]-------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/p][p]The page is a combination of money raised by his stupid challenges and money for entering events such as King of the spHill, Beat the Barrel and The Great British Beerathon.[/p][p]My next challenge is [span=color: #ff0000;]racing the marathon de sable[/span] in 2015. That's right racing, not running. I've never run more than a marathon, but my challenge is to finish in the top 20 (elite is top 50) and who knows maybe even first Brit.[/p][p][span=text-decoration: underline;]Challenges undertaken in 2013[/span][/p][p]1) Pacemake the Brighton marathon in under 3.15 (with no tapering) – top 7% of marathon runners. [span=color: #ff0000;]Tick - 3.14[/span][/p] [p]2)  Run the London marathon a week later and be winning the entire race at the 400 meter point – will take some positioning and going flat out to catch Mo Farah, he’ll be averaging 71 seconds per 400 and I’ll be starting downfield. [span=color: #ff0000;]Tick - [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R7keX2tQ8A]leading the London Marathon[/url][/span][/p] [p]3)  Finish the London marathon in a good for age time of sub 3.10 (with no tapering) – top 5% of marathon runners, target 2 could scupper this. [span=color: #ff0000;]Tick - 3.03[/span][/p] [p]4)  Top ten in the [url=http://www.ratracedirtyweekend.com/]world’s largest assault course[/url] 3 weeks later (20 miles and 200 obstacles) - harder than a marathon. [span=color: #ff0000;]Tick - fastest time[/span][/p] [p]5)  Podium at the [url=http://www.kilnsierraleonemarathon.com/]Sierra Leone marathon[/url] - two weeks later. [span=color: #ff0000;]Tick - first international finisher[/span][/p] [p]6)  Finish the [url=http://www.kilnsierraleonemarathon.com/]Sierra Leone marathon[/url] 2.50-3hrs – average temperature 31C (88F ) - top 1-3% marathon runners.
