My story

<p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">THE MARATHON DES SABLES - THE TOUGHEST FOOTRACE ON EARTH!</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In APRIL 2011,&nbsp;Dr Justin Roberts from the University of Hertfordshire&nbsp;will be&nbsp;pushing himself to the limit by undertaking the infamous <strong>MARATHON DES SABLES</strong> - the toughest footrace on Earth - 150miles across Sahara in extreme heat with daily temperatures above 50'C.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He will have to endure searing heat, blisters, scorpians, muscle fatigue, more blisters, dehydration, snakes, sanddunes, and more blisters - all this whilst carrying everything he needs for the week and endeavouring to complete the challenging distance. This is not for the faint-hearted - this is extreme in every sense of the word.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Why is&nbsp;he doing this?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Justin is raising money for the MUSCLE HELP FOUNDATION - and 100% of the money raised via YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS will go directly towards delivering <strong>MUSCLE DREAMS</strong> -&nbsp;&nbsp;life changing&nbsp;experiences for children with MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Justin is pushing his muscles to the limit, to help those who cannot walk at all. Why not be a part of something amazing today. In fact if you would also like to join Justin on his final event for 2011 - please write to him at <a href="mailto:drjustinroberts@hotmail.com">drjustinroberts@hotmail.com</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Thank you for your support.</p>
