My story

[p]Well I really have gone mad this time!!   In the euphoria of completing the Arch to Arc in 2015 (invoving swimming the English Channel) I signed up to the challenge called Marathon Des Sables, which is also known as 'the toughest footrace on earth'.  [/p][p]It involves running, trekking and walking (and most likley crawling in my case!!) approximately 150 miles in 6 days through the Moroccan Sahara .  That's the equivalent of 5 1/2 marathons in extreme conditions - sand dunes, 120F temperatures, sand storms and blisters whilst carrying everything I need for the entire race on my back - big eeeekkkk!!!  I will really need every ounce of your support for this one that's for sure.[/p][p]As a serving Army Reservist, Walking with the Wounded is a charity close to my heart as it's mission is to support all veterans with physical, mental or social injury to gain the skills and qualifications necessary to develop new careers outside the military, re-integrate into society and provide long-term security for themselves and their families.[/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]
