My story

[p][i]The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events. The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019. Many of these charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most; thousands of staff have been placed on furlough and many charities will not survive the next few months.[/i][/p][p]Wanting to do something to help, however small, I have decided to run a marathon over the course of a week, starting on Sunday 26th April, the day that the London Marathon was due to be held. (I will be running in my local woodland park, keeping a safe distance from others, of course!) I have chosen two important charities that need support at this time. If you are able to make a donation at this time, it will help them to continue doing their excellent and much needed work. Find out more about what they do here: [/p][p][url=https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/]https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.cats.org.uk/]https://www.cats.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]Thank you in advance, and if I meet my target, I promise a celebratory post-run selfie!*[/p][p]*Because I've had so many generous donations, I have already beaten my target.. thank you so much to everyone who has donated! It means a lot and is helping me to stay motivated as I clock up the miles. As promised, I am uploading a selfie which features my lockdown pal! [/p]
