My story

[p]Team ukactive, led by our legendary leader Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson will be taking on a challenge of the self-isolation backyard marathon in order to generate some money for an amazing charity, The Trussell Trust. Their food banks are working in overdrive right now to ensure the most vulnerable in society are not forgotten at this time of crisis. And they need all of our help...[/p][p]...So, on Sunday 26th April (the original date for this year's London Marathon), members of ukactive staff will be pushing ourselves in the most mundane way possible by running marathons in our backyards. [/p][p]The team consists of:[/p][p]Marathon One - Ollie Moreton[/p][p]Marathon Two - Dave Gerrish[/p][p]Marathon Three - Will Smithard[/p][p]Marathon Four - Jack Shakespeare and Sinead McCafferty[/p][p]Marathon Five - Dave Alstead, Tanni Grey-Thompson and Charlotte Cuenot[/p][p]This will involve thousands of laps of our backyards or communal spaces (strictly adhering to all Government guidelines around social distancing). [/p][p]It will be long, it will be repetitive, it will hurt. It will involve pushing babies in buggies, having toddlers join in, watching loved ones enjoying sitting on deckchairs and generally avoiding kids' toys, weeds, hoses and dog mess.[/p][p]Last year, food banks in The Trussell Trust's network provided more than 1.6 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis. More than half a million of these went to children. It’s not right that people can’t afford the basics. With your help, we can help end the need for food banks. As a nation, we expect no one should be left hungry or destitute. Illness, disability, family breakdown or the loss of a job can happen to any of us. [/p][p]So please do give a donation, no matter how big.[/p][p]Many thanks and we look forward to sharing our successes with you on Sunday![/p]
