My story

[p]Hello friends![/p][p]Welcome to the first official 'mj' project... and yes, we’ve started with a big one! On April 28 2019, come rain or shine, injury and agony – we will [b]both[/b] complete the full 26.2 miles of one of the world’s most prestigious marathons, in our home town, London. But, why...[/p][p]We have both been brought up in loving, supportive and Christian families. It’s these attributes (and more) that have shaped us into happy, content and secure people that we're both privileged to be. But we understand, more than ever – not everybody has the start we enjoyed. Eikon is an awesome team, aimed at proactively helping less fortunate young people in London and Surrey with harder starts than ours. As well as being involved directly with the charity, we want to raise as much awareness as possible for them... hence this horrendous challenge.[/p][p]These charities only exist with the help of generous people like you! So please give what you can and we promise it’ll boost us enormously with the daunting prospect of running.[/p][p]Neither of us have run before – so hopefully you’ll enjoy following our year of progress on Instagram at [url=https://www.instagram.com/mjmarathon/]@mjmarathon[/url][/p][p]Thanks so much,[/p][p]mj x[/p][p]Matt Turner & Jonny Coekin[/p]
