My story

[p]Hi all,[/p][p]I thought about writing a heartfelt message here to persuade you to sponsor me but the truth is that I made the decision to run the marathon to challenge myself. The next step was to find a charity to run for - Child Bereavement is an amazing charity that does phenomenal work on all areas of child bereavement, particularly supporting children who have lost a parent and parents/siblings who have lost a child/sibling. [/p][p]Two quick stats:[/p][p]A parent of a child under 18 dies every 22 minutes in the UK; around 23,600 a year. This equates to around 111 children being bereaved of a parent every day.[/p][p]1 in 29, 5-16 year-olds has been bereaved of a parent or sibling.[/p][p]So here's the Garmin currently predicts that I'll complete the marathon in 4hrs 22minutes.[/p][p]If I finish in under 4hrs 10mins - you're on the hook for your whole donation.[/p][p]If I finish between 4hrs 10mins and 4hrs 34mins - I'll cover half of your donation.[/p][p]If I finish in over 4hrs 34mins - I'll cover your whole donation.[/p][p]I know many of you already give very generously to charity, so I 100% understand if this doesn't fit in with your giving plans.[/p][p]Thanks,[/p][p]Chris[/p][p][url=][/url][/p]

If you can't do the marathon after all the L-Carnitine you have been taking, there really is a problem. Good luck.
