My story

[lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]My colleagues (52 of them!) at Rockspring and I have signed up to an epic challenge to walk or cycle the South Downs Way over a four or two day period respectively.  The South Downs Way is an old Roman road linking Winchester to Eastbourne totalling 105 miles in distance and 2.5 miles of ascent, equivalent to climbing 1/3 of Mount Everest.[/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]Due to a re-occurring spinal injury I am only able to join the group for one day which involves a walk/run of 26 miles, a marathon distance, and climbing the equivalent of Snowden in ascent! [/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]As some of you will know I have been unable to run for about 18 months now and although this distance may seem easy to some, my fitness levels and injury makes this an immense challenge for me personally.  Training for this event has been painful to say the least as my back still gives me trouble and find myself running like a crab in an attempt to ease the pain. [/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]What is motivating me?  The charities we are supporting are very close to my heart.  My family has been riddled with cancer over recent years and every step I take will be one step closer to beating this life changing disease.  PiP is a charity helping adults with learning difficulties and Whizz Kidz who provide wheelchairs for disabled children.[/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]I am sure you’ll agree that these are worthy causes.  I encourage you to dig deep and give what you can afford please.  Rockspring are funding the whole event with 53 people taking part.  All funds raised go [b][span=text-decoration: underline;]directly[/span][/b] to charity so please give generously.[/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]Our fund raising target is £75,000 and pleased to say we’re nearly half way. [/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]Best wishes,[/p][lt]p class="NormalRS"[gt]Shaun[/p]
