My story

[p]Hi! Thanks very much for visiting my page! Please see below to find out about the amazing work that MapAction do, and donate as much as you can spare to help me support their cause.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]My Story:[/u][/b][/p][p]So, I’m running the London Marathon on the 28th April, 2019!! [/p][p]This is the third year I’ve ran the London Marathon and I’m so happy to have this opportunity to support MapAction again. They are an amazing charity who use technical skills to support aid relief in very desperate times. [/p][p]Please take some time to check out MapAction using the link below.[/p][p]Running last year was a massive challenge – the heat made it difficult for anyone to meet their intended finish times. I was very disappointed at how slow I was (close to 6 hrs!!). This year I'll complete the same lengthy training that I have the last two years, but with a strategy for increasing strength and speed to hopefully reduce my time! I’ll need plenty of support and encouragement to reach my goals, so please donate if you can spare anything. It's suprising how quickly the target gets reached if everyone spares a little! [/p][p]I was overwhelmed with the support I received the last two years, especially from my team at Landmark Information; my colleagues here are the most generous people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. It's very hard asking for the same generosity the thrid time round, but I hope the amazing work Mapaction do will continue to inspire you all to donate. [/p][p][br][/p][p]­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­[b][u]MapAction[/u]:[/b][/p][p]A little word from me first… MapAction do not receive funding from large public appeals, so they rely heavily on their supporters in order to keep their incredible work going.[/p][p]MapAction instantly deploys GIS professions out to areas of humanitarian crisis in order to immediately support the emergency aid responses. Their team of volunteers are made up of people who have normal lives, but drop everything in times of crisis in order to reach the scene within 24-48 hours of disaster striking. I think this is unbelievably admirable, and it will be all I’m thinking about on the day of the marathon to keep me going – if they can do that, I should be able to run a few miles shouldn’t I!?[/p][p]Please follow this link to find out more about MapAction: https://mapaction.org/[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and an even bigger thank you if you can spare a donation to support MapAction![/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks so much![/p][p]Pip xx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
