My story

[p]Hi[/p][p]I am Gavin Sandford and thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]I am doing a series of Extreme Physical Challenges as it is my Mission to raise awareness and Charitable Donations that will support The [span=text-decoration: underline;]Queen Elizabeth Charity[/span] [span=text-decoration: underline;]Blesma Limbless Veterans[/span] and The [span=text-decoration: underline;]Team Margot[/span] Foundation.[/p][p]100% of funds will evenly be distributed and go directly to these fantastic charities.[/p][p]Donations to  into providing critically needed, non government funded, World Class Rehabilitation Equipment and Prosthetic Development which will help countless patients of all ages who have medical problems that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives and return them to the comfort of their home environment and an active better quality of life as soon as possible, with ongoing care on many levels being given to Ex Veterans by Blesma.[/p][p]QEHB is recognised as one of the leading hospitals in Europe and has an international reputation for quality of care. QEHB is world-renowned for its trauma care and is a host to the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine.  QEHB services has a regional specialist cancer centre which is one of the largest regional centres for non-surgical cancer treatment.[/p][p]Blesma, The Limbless Veterans helps all serving and ex-Service men and women who have lost limbs, or lost the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support.[/p][p]Team Margot main focus is far more than just collecting donations. It is about spreading the word to people to register as potential stem cell donor and encourage others to do the same. This simple quick and selfless act could save a life.[/p][p]Donations that are given to Team Margot will be deployed via their grant giving Foundation, which supports people and projects, such as charities and research related to bone marrow / stem cell transplants, blood disorders like leukaemia and those caring for child cancer patients. [/p][p][span=text-decoration: underline;][b]Who am i and Why[/b][/span] [/p][p]I have served as a Soldier in the British Army. Currently i am a Anaesthetic Practitioner in Queen Elizabeth Hospital Operating Theatres.[/p][p]In both my careers I have seen and been inspired by how people, young and old, deal with their sufferings, showing such tremendous courage and astounding attitudes[lt]br /[gt]of… “I can and I will" Many Situations stick to your very core and this is why I am passionate about helping others and why I have been inspired to embark on a series of extreme physical challenges to support these amazing charities:[/p][p]My first Extreme Challenge was in 05/08/2014. I ran solo covering 45 Marathons over 45 days whilst pushing a 50k.g barrel on a wheel chair covering a 1200 mile route across the U.K. As people deposited donations into ‘Bessy’ the Barrel, it got heavier and the challenge got harder. I raised over £10.000.[/p][p]My next challenge is a World First. A consecutive “BACK TO BACK” run of the famous Marathon Des Sables.[lt]br /[gt]The M.D.S is ranked by the Discovery Channel as the TOUGHEST FOOTRACE ON EARTH.[/p][p]I cannot thank you enough for your support[/p][p]Gavin Sandford[/p][p]Founder of ' I Can and I Will '[/p]
