My story

[p]Will and Sammy's big challenge to raise money for the Get Exploring Trust.[/p][p]Against my better judgement I have taken up a last(ish) minute place for the London Marathon. And I am going to do it in aid of a fantastic cause, the [url=http://www.getexploringtrust.com]Get Exploring Trust[/url], through which we help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds access the outdoors. However, why should you sponsor me for a mere marathon I hear you ask![/p][p]I thought the same. But needed a crazy individual to validate the real plan and join me on the venture... bring on Sammy![/p][p]So, going against all the advice of doing nothing in the week prior to running, here goes the plan for three back-to-back challenges...[/p][p]Starting in Dublin, Sammy and Will will kayak across the fierce Irish Sea to Holyhead, Wales.[/p][p]Pick up bikes from the beach and cycle the 300 miles to London.[/p][p]With tired legs, Will will then run 26.2 miles around London (leaving Sammy to cycle home... maybe).[/p][p]This is all in aid of the Get Exploring Trust, a charity I helped establish in order to inspire and enable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get into the outdoors and develop themselves through adventurous activities. Having awarded our first grants last year we have been stirred and motivated by the stories and life changing experiences we have modestly supported. You can find out more about who we are supporting and what they are achieving at [url=http://www.getexploringtrust.com]www.getexploringtrust.com[/url]. [/p][p]Any small contribution you can make in support of this little venture will not only be a massive motivation for me every mile of the kayaking, cycling and running. It will also make it possible for us to continue helping young people to get ‘over the line’ in their fundraising for trips and courses to enhance their character and life prospects through exposure to challenging, exciting and inspiring experiences.[/p][p]And if this isn't enough to make you want to donate, you can comment with your donation a song that we will have to add to our playlist to listen to along the way..[/p]
