My story

[p]I'm am running the Marathon to raise money for Bench Outreach.[/p][p]But that's not it. Not entirely.[/p][p]There are people out there who genuinely understand the most challenging needs in our society. People far wiser than I am. I care about the dissadvantaged but often don't know how to begin to help. Or maybe I'm too scared.[/p][p]But there are people who know what is needed and are doing something about it. These wonderful people need our support.[/p][p]So I'm raising awareness of those that are doing something powerful for those who are powerless. They are helping vulnerable people overcome drug and alcohol dependence, find decent homes and lead lives that have meaning and purpose.[/p][p]I'm busting a gut (a rather large gut that could do with a bit of excercise, mind you...), I'm running a few extra miles and destroying my already pretty messed up mid-life physique so that just maybe we can do something genuinely positive to better our socitety. [/p][p]I need you to dig deep. Check out the charity, watch the films I'm going to be ramming down your throat over the next few months and give a crazy amount of money to this utterly fantastic, wonderful, necessary group of some of the best people that God has put on this planet.[/p][p]DIG DEEP! Please give what you can, and know that you will be helping people to live a better life. Perhaps even helping folk to even live.[/p][p]Check out: https://www.benchoutreach.com/about_us[/p][p]THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT![/p][p]John.[/p][p][br][/p]
