My story

[p]I'm honoured this year to run the London Marathon and raise funds for an extraordinary local UK organization Beanstalk. Beanstalk's mission is near and dear to the heart, to give every child the literacy skills and confidence that will serve them well for a lifetime.[/p][p]Tackling something such as a marathon can be very empowering for people giving them confidence and life skills, and Beanstalk's mission is even more fundamental. Beanstalk intervenes at an early age, providing Children aged 6-11 that are in need with one-on-one help to learn how to read and write and communicate, to empower the children with life-long fundamental skills and confidence.[/p][p]Marathon runners' training routines (long runs, tempo runs, speedwork, physio, rehab) are a great voluntary challenge; however fundamental daily activities affected by illiteracy shouldn't be: school or job, tests, forms, applications, bills, prescription warnings, email, facebook, and your favourite books.[/p][p]Please join me in supporting Beanstalk, and if you'd like to, share some of your favourite books in your comments when you donate.[/p][p]Some of my favorites: The Tipping Point (Gladwell), Freakonomics (Dubner and Levitt), Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It (Taubes), The Cool Impossible (Orton).[/p][p]Thank you![/p][p][br][/p]
