My story

[vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ywLDe01fayI?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]Hi I’m Jack (age 13yrs),[/p][p]I pledge to swim, bike & run 15km per day for 20 days (300km!) to help raise vital funds for urgent COVID-19 research being carried out by the team at Oxford university responsible for the development of a vaccine. My pledge will be a personal challenge but I am determined to complete it and I know my family will be cheering and supporting me for every stroke, pedal and step of the way! [/p][p]The research team at Oxford promise that all project funding will have an immediate and high impact on the global COVID-19 crisis. Public donations of any size will be rapidly put to use in frontline research and this is my motivation to complete this challenge. [/p][p]I know everyone has been affected by this pandemic in some way and I am keen to support those trying to find a cure. The risk is very real to me as my father is a surgeon on the frontline and every single day he goes to work, I think about his safety and I can only hope he stays safe and protected from the virus. [/p][p]I want us all to feel safe again and return to our normal lives. I hope you can support my pledge and I will be so grateful for any donation you can make towards this vital cause. [/p][p]Together, Let's BEAT the virus...... Jack : ) [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p]
