My story

[p]Hey, thanks for checking out my latest challenge![/p][p]The Challenge:[/p] [p]Starting on Friday 29th April, I will be running the width of the UK, from Lands End to Lowestoft, which covers approximately 450 miles. Mental![/p][p]The Charity:[/p] [p]I'm raising money for Youth Adventure Trust, who are a small Wiltshire-based charity working with 11-14 year olds who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. On the YAT programme, they are introduced to all sorts of outdoors activities - gorge walking, caving, rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, wild camping etc - and with the guidance of the volunteers and camp managers, these young people are encouraged to achieve much more, try new things and set them on a better path for the future.[/p][p]I'm aiming to raise £3,300 - the cost of one young person's place on the Youth Adventure Trust 3-year programme. I'm a massive fan of this charity - it represents a lot of my views on the importance of getting outdoors, so please support me![/p][p][/p][p]Virgin Money Giving:[/p] [p]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]
