My story

[p]Someone very special to us, my Granny Mary, my Mum's Mum, and friend of many, passed away this year after a long illness with myelodysplasia. [/p][p]I have never done a sponsored run before, nevermind [u]thirteen miles in succession,[/u] but on the [b]13th of October[/b] I will run the London Royal Park's Half-Marathon in her memory, raising money for [i]Bloodwise[/i] - an extraordinary charity that does groundbreaking research on blood cancers. I originally volunteered for the Great North Run but I lacked the minimum age of seventeen on the day of the event, but by a few weeks I've managed to register for Royal Park, making me among the youngest to attempt this run.[/p][p]My grandma suffered immensely towards the end of her life, myelodysplasia is a cruel illness. With your support, we can make sure others have access to better treatment and reduced pain.[/p][p]Please give what you can,[/p][p][i]Douglas[/i][/p]

Thank you to Jonathan from All Saints, it's genuinely appreciated! PS I'm not one to ask for presents from my mates on my birthday, but if you could give to the fundraiser, that would be a wonderful thing to wake to on the 29th :)
