My story

[p][span=color: #0000ff;][b]UPDATE![/b][/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;][b]A huge thank you to everyone who has been donating since the BBC piece. Over a thousand pounds has been raised in one day alone. You are fantastic, all of you.[/b][/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;][b]The piece with the Jonathan Edwards interview can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYKHByZtYEc[/b][/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;][b]In the race itself I ran 2h45'07. I enjoyed most of it very much and thought of David frequently which helped me dig deep. Yes I could have shaved off those 7 seconds if I was concentrating more in the final mile but nevermind. I'm still so glad to have done it today and to help raise awareness for Papyrus.[/b][/span][/p][p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.

I was very moved by your interview when I watched the London Marathon. I hope donations can help to prevent this happening to others.

Inspirational. I lost my wife to suicide a year ago and I appreciate that your daughter has been in contact with my daughter, who was also at Backwell School.
