My story

[p]Hello, [/p][p]I was supposed to be doing a marathon this year, but it looks like marathon season won't be returning any time soon. So while we wait, me and a very good friend of mine, Matthew Ratcliffe, will be taking on another challenge...[/p][p][b][u]The 4.4.48[/u][/b][/p][p]4 miles, every four hours, for 48 hours. We're starting Sunday 7th May at 8am and finishing on the Tuesday at the same time. It'll be 52 miles for each of us over 2 days. And, you can watch our painful progress on Instagram as the runs go by. It's going to be a sore and shitty road, but it's for a great guy and a great cause... [/p][p][b][u]We're running in honour of the mighty Shea French-Gibbens[/u][/b][/p][p]Ruthless film critic. Supremely gifted writer. Devoted Manchester Utd fan (you can’t have it all, Shea). There’re a handful of people you meet in life who help you do it better. Those people who are doing such a grand job, you’re left with no choice but to sit up and take note. Shea was one of those guys.[/p][p]Tragically he was taken from us far too early, after his second bout of cancer. He was only 18. [/p][p]But in 18 years, he achieved remarkable things and was loved by all who had the good fortune of meeting him. We miss you big guy x [/p][p][b][u]All of your donations go to The South London Special League[/u][/b][/p][p]Shea had quadriplegic cerebral palsy and The South London Special League gave him the opportunity to play a sport he otherwise wouldn’t have had access to. I know he got so much out of playing wheelchair football for the charity - he’d make sure to remind me he was the league’s top scorer at any given chance! Take a look at all the work they're doing on their website: [url=https://slsl2013.wordpress.com/about/]https://slsl2013.wordpress.com/about/[/url]. [/p][p]Shea's in the second video down with his mum, Viv. If you've got time, he'll do a much better job than I can of explaining how the charity transformed his life, and how it keeps transforming others.[/p][p]Please give what you can, it really goes a long way. [/p][p]Cheers for reading! X[/p]
