My story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Those of you who know me will be aware that I am not one of nature's born athletes.&nbsp; Although my two kidney transplants have given me 18 years (and counting) of unbelieveable health they have not turned me into Paula Radcliffe.</p> <p>I am running the London Marathon to show how transplants change lives and to say thank you to all my family, friends, work colleagues and the many amazing professionals at Manchester Royal Infirmary who have supported me over the&nbsp; years.&nbsp;</p> <p>Most of all though I am doing it to say thank you to the two families that I have never met who, through their courageous decsion to donate their loved one's organs have given me everything I have today.</p> <p>Please give generously (or I will have to make up the difference!)</p>

Des - you're a real inspiration. Seems pedantic to give you a £1 per mile, so I rounded it up...;-)
