Team story

[p]Hi there, thanks for visiting our page![/p][p]It's always been a dream of Ruth's to run the London Marathon. Sam beat her to it (surprise, surprise) when he ran it in 2012. This year, she decided it was her turn, and thought it would be 'romantic'(??) to run it together. Sam accepted - although there's some dispute as to whether we're aiming for a good time (Sam) or just hoping to finish (Ruth)[/p][p]So here we are, training as hard as we can when we're not busy looking after our two boisterous little boys. [/p][p]Our most important reason for running it is to do it for a good cause. Oasis Trust is just that, and then some. They provide homes and training for the homeless, run schools in some of the world's poorest communities and are doing a huge amount to stop human trafficking...amongst many other things. Please take a further look if you have time to.[/p][p]We'd really appreciate it if you could support us and, more importantly, all of the people Oasis Trust helps. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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.[/p][p]We really appreciate your support,[/p][p]Sam and Ruth :-)[/p][p][/p][p][/p]
