My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [b]My next event is #5Kaday January - and I will run a minimum of 5k every day for a month! [/b][span=font-weight: bold;]We have increased the target to £3000!!!!! Well done everyone for the support so far! [/span][/p][p]I am committing to support a local East Midlands charity called Equation who work tirelessly to stop domestic violence and abuse from being present in the lives of women, men and children.  They work with victims, families and schools to make a huge difference.[/p][p]Every month from March 2015 I will be completing a minimum of one monthly endurance activity and I'd ask for you to support me as I seek donations each month to support this charity.  I started the challenge on March 1st with the Coventry Half Marathon and will plan to complete my year of endurance by throwing myself out of a plane in February 2016.[/p][p]I am aiming to raise £200 per month and will alter my fundraising total each month - every £ given will make a difference, please support![/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Equation. 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]EVENTS LIST:[/p][p][/p][div=font-family: Helvetica; font-size: 12px;]List of events (confirmed - this will change as I add more and participation is welcome, all I ask is you use my virginmoney giving page to fundraise with me if you are joining me or if not fundraising please join me for moral support):[/div] [div=font-family: Helvetica;
