My story

[p]Cameron is the much-missed son of wonderful friends; he tragically died in an accident a few years ago, when he was just 16. [/p][p]Until I started training for this marathon, I had never run further than 10km - and that was nearly 40 years ago! This is the second time, though, that I have been inspired by Cameron's memory to get out of my comfort zone and take on what feels like an unconquerable challenge. The last one, in 2017, was to cycle from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, across the Pyrenees - an unforgettable, six-day rain-soaked odyssey. I am hoping for better weather in Berlin! [/p][p]The Cameron Bespolka Trust is a charity set up in Cameron's memory. He loved nature. He photographed it, blogged about it, surveyed it and immersed himself in it. Bird-watching was a major part of his life. The Trust is proud to partner with a wide range of organisations actively involved in protecting and promoting the natural world. These partnerships are vital to ensuring that the Trust's work is relevant and valuable. [/p][p]The Trust has pledged to renovate Cameron's Cottage, to be a place where young people can stay and experience the outdoors first hand in the heart of the RSPB reserve in the New Forest. It is raising funds to complete this project. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Please support us. Your donation makes a huge difference. All administrative costs are covered by the family. We appreciate every penny. Thank you. [/p]
