My story

[p]On Sunday 22 April I'll be running the London Marathon, my first marathon, in support of Guide Dogs for the Blind. I'm really excited to be a part of this special event and to be raising money for such a worthwhile charity.[/p][p]With one day to go, we've reached the initial fundraising target - you are all awesome: thank you. How much further can we go?[/p][p]The distance is a bit scary to me - I've reached 22 miles in training (albeit slowly), and 26.2 now seems in sight even if an awfully long way. The thought of your generous support for this cause will help to motivate me through winter training and the race itself.[/p][p]You can see a bit of recent progress at my occasional blog: [url=http://stephenafoot.co.uk]Stephen Afoot[/url][/p][p]In the UK today, almost two million people are living with sight loss and of those, around 180,000 rarely leave their homes alone and many suffer from depression and struggle with feelings of isolation.[/p][p]Guide Dogs helps people with sight loss, most visibly through their world-famous guide dogs, but the work now encompasses so much more, helping people with sight loss tackle obstacles they face on a daily basis.[/p][p]Every guide dog owner has been promised that they will have a guide dog for as long as they need one. That can't be done without the funds raised by supporters. If you can, please make a donation to this important cause.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
