My story

[p]To celebrate my 40th birthday this year, I had a crazy idea to complete a half iron man (what else would you do to celebrate a big birthday) so after persuading a few buddies to get involved too, I signed up to The Gauntlet at Hever Castle in July. I thought this would be sufficient a challenge however.....I received an unexpected phone call in mid December from Virgin for Intermediaries to tell me I was lucky enough to win a competition I had entered earlier that year. The prize? A place in the Virgin London Marathon 2018! I hesitated when I asked if I would accept the prize but the London Marathon is a special event and I couldn't resist saying yes. So on April 22nd I will be on the start line of the most amazing race alongside Mo Farah and 11 weeks later I will face the Gauntlet at Hever Castle. [/p][p]I couldn't let these challenges pass without raising some much needed funds for two fantastic charities - the North Devon Hospice and Devon Air Ambulance. Both carry out exceptional support in our local area and I will be honoured to fundraise for them. [/p][p]Many thanks for any donation you can offer. [/p]
