My story

[p]Eighteen months later than originally planned, on the 3rd October I am planning on hopping the 26.2 miles for the London Marathon in aid of a fantastic charity called RAFT (Restoration of Appearance & Function Trust). Whilst I’m hoping bad running shoes means I won’t suffer from de-feet (😉), I must admit I’m a bit nervous to be attempting to tick the marathon off the bucket list as my usual 90 minute weekly footy match won't quite cut the mustard in terms of training on this occasion. Time to ramp the training up a notch![/p][p]Despite my fitness woes, the RAFT charity that I have chosen to run on behalf of is worth the toil as they conduct amazing work pioneering research which helps people that have suffered physical trauma. They are a small charity who are really pushing the boundaries of research – developing innovative concepts which have the potential to help millions of people. In particular, they focus on:[/p][p]- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy [/p][p]- Bone regeneration [/p][p]- Facial reconstruction using 3D printings[/p][p]- Keloid scar healing project[/p][p]- Bionic limb research[/p][p]Given their size, all the money raised will go directly to the people that need it, rather than being spent on vast admin costs as tends to be the case with some of the larger charities. Any donation, even the £3 price of a cup of coffee, adds up to make a huge difference to the charity and to the people that so desperately need it.[/p][p]Have a look at their website [url=https://raft.ac.uk/]https://raft.ac.uk/[/url] if you would like to know more about the amazing work that they do. [/p][p]Any donation, however small, will be very gratefully received.[/p][p]Thank you,[/p][p]Olly [/p]
