My story

[p][span=font-family: mceinline;]Since I moved back to Uist I have been inspired by the 1 Million Miles for Ellie Campaign which has brought communities together. ([url=http://www.1millionmilesforellie.co.uk]www.1millionmilesforellie.co.uk[/url])[/span][/p][p]Because I normally run marathons, I thought for me to raise money I would have to go [b]WAY[/b] out of my comfort zone, so I signed up to a 53 mile race along the West Highland Way from Milngavie to Tyndrum (April 29th).[/p][p]Then I thought about something more local -  run the Butt of Lewis to Barra (or in the other direction depending on the wind!) - [b]150 MILES - a Marathon a Day[/b] [b]for 6 Days[/b] (Starting 6th July)!![/p][p]Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer, the Butt to Barra run is on my Bucket List, by donating you will help "Destroy Cancer" which was on Ellie's Bucket List.[/p][p]Thank you - every penny will help![/p]
