My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to click into my fundraising page for the London and Berlin Marathon on 28th April and 29th Sept 2019 respectively! [/p][p]Having entered the real world for almost 2 years and in an attempt to do something vaguely productive with life (did someone say quarter life crisis?), what better way to help raise money for a fantastic cause and overcome any personal phobia of running (yes it was!) than to run two full marathons?[/p][p]So here I am – I will be taking on the London Marathon 2019, my first (out of the six) World Marathon Majors, and rounding off with the Berlin one (the only two WMM races in Europe) in Sept 2019! This is the first time ever in my life setting up a fundraising page (2 marathons/charities on the same page - synergies! #corporatefinance101), your words of encouragement/advice and charitable donations would mean the world to me and my 42.2km/26.2miles ventures![/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Coram Beanstalk[/b]: A national children's literacy charity that has been working for 45 years to provide one-to-one support to disadvantaged children who struggle with reading. [/p][p]Just a small amount can make a huge difference:[/p][p] -£7 will provide one week's worth of literacy support[/p][p] -£30 will provide one month's worth of literacy support[/p][p] -£60 will provide an entire term's worth of literacy support[/p][p]Reaching my target of £2,000 will provide over 1,370 sessions of reading support to children giving them the confidence they need to thrive. Let’s rewrite their stories! [url=https://www.beanstalkcharity.org.uk/]https://www.beanstalkcharity.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][b]Get Kids Going![/b]: A national charity which gives disabled children and young people - up to the age of 26 yrs - the wonderful opportunity of participating in sport. Get Kids Going! gives disabled children and young people the chance of a life time, freedom, and many wonderful opportunities that you and I take for granted. No other charity in the UK focuses on helping disabled children and young people with sport in the same way. [/p][p]Get Kids Going!'s aim is to give support to all their budding paralympians in the build up to the 2020 Tokyo Summer Paralympics, the 2022 Beijing Winter Paralympics and many more such events. With your help many can become world record holders and paralympic champions (including gold medalists Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe at the World Alpine Ski Championships)! [url=https://www.getkidsgoing.com/aboutus.htm]https://www.getkidsgoing.com/aboutus.htm[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]Virgin Money Giving, the official sponsor for London Marathon 2019, is a not-for-profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. Please kindly tick the ‘GiftAid’ box (if you are a U.K. taxpayer). Coram Beanstalk and Get Kids Going! get an extra 25% on top of donations from HMRC, which is an extra £500 from each of you on top of reaching the £2000 target![/p][p][br][/p][p]*To my overseas friends, feel free to reach out to me on how your charitable donations in local currencies can go into the pockets of the disadvantaged children – we can definitely figure something out! +85260737525 (WhatsApp) / 07591931899 / dicksontclam@gmail.com*[/p][p]P.S. Will regularly update this page to share my painful, yet fun, trainings and races, stay tuned (and follow me on Strava - ID: Dickson Lam)![/p][p][img][/img][img][/img][/p]
