My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. YouthNet and AgeUK are official partners of the marathon this year which is reeaalllly exciting![/p][p]Most of you will know that I initially planned to run the marathon dressed as Octi the Octopus - YouthNet's unofficial mascot - and try and break a fastest mascot record. Unfortunately, mascots have to be properly official to count (and poor old Octi isn't) so that idea fell through.[/p][p]Instead I am going to try and beat my old time of 3hours 49 mins. I'm running with my friend Lyd (pictured here after we finished our 21 mile training run) whose best time is 3 hours 43, so she'll be challenging me to go faster![/p][p]I know I have done a marathon before but if anyone is able to spare some change towards the Run for IT project, it would help spur me on! It is an excellent project - reducing loneliness and isolation in the elderly by teaming them up with young volunteers who visit them and teach them more about using computers and the internet to keep in touch with family and friends. My teammate Laura is working mega hard on the pilot projects at the moment and it's going really well.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Thanks again![/p]
