My story

[p][b]Updated January 27th 2020[/b][/p][p]Thanks to a fantastic response at the Timepeace Concert on January 25th which raised around £760 on the night we are now well past our target. Thank you to everyone for your support on this amazing journey. Only 3 months to go now to the big day![/p][p][b]Updated 18th November [/b][/p][p]Big thank you to all those who have helped me reach my target. Now everything is a bonus and we want to maximise that as much as possible.[/p][p]The next big event is a Concert at the Salvation Army High Street Romford on January 25th at 6pm given by the brass quintet Timepeace of which I’m a member. It’s Timepeace’s 20th anniversary as well and entry is free.[/p][p]See my Facebook page Steve Denniss runs the London Marathon 2020 for more details [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]updated 10th September[/b][/p][p]A massive thank you to all those who have donated so far. I hope I’ve thanked most of you personally. For those who preferred to remain anonymous or forgot to add your name if you let me know privately who you are then I’d like to thank you too. My mobile is +447572047527. Just like a Marathon we’ve made a great start and there is still a way to go.[/p][p][b]Updated 30th July 2019 - The 4x10 Challenge[/b][/p][p]As part of my preparation, and to celebrate Headway's 40th Anniversary I will be staging a 4x10 challenge. I will be attempting to run 10, 10Ks, in 10 days, in 10 hours. Starting on September 13th and finishing on September 22nd. My runs will include the Greenwich Park 10K on Saturday 14th, the Reigate 10K on Sunday 15th and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park 10K on Saturday 21st, as well as some local routes and courses near my home in Dartford. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Updated 7th July 2019[/p][p]The opportunity to run the 2020 London Marathon has been given more poignancy by the passing of my mum this week. She followed my running journey closely and was really pleased that I finally had a place in the big one. So sad that she won’t be here to see me fulfil this particular dream, but I will be carrying her spirit with me [/p][p]Updated 24th June 2019[/p][p]I am very grateful and pleased to be given this opportunity, in my sixtieth year, to continue my running journey in this way by running the London Marathon in 2020. My desire to run for Headway is borne out of a lasting memory of the love and fun brought into our lives by Amy Haskew, daughter of my cousins Richard and Liz, who died following a cycling accident whilst on holiday in Australia. Amy wasn't able to recover from her injuries; if she had, she and her family would have come to rely on the charity Headway.[/p]
