Team story

[p]Giles Bell, Simon Sowdon, Will Hughes, Paul Vicars, Huw Peach, Sophie Peach, Claire Darke, Steven Christopher, Nick David, Jo Yates and Andy Weston are running the Shrewsbury half marathon for the Scleroderma society. I know this may not seem too much of a challenge for eleven such renowned athletes and so to make it a bit trickier we are going to try to make it look difficult to run it in under 2 hours. Yes that's right we will have to run slower than we would like to and that will be really frustrating for us all. Infact it will be torture to watch other slower runners continually going past us. We may suffer mental issues as a result which is part of the reason you should sponsor us extremely generously. We are going to try run in such a way that spectators will think we are only just going to make it in under two hours. We will all be going on a variety of acting courses and are undergoing facial grimacing conditioning.[/p][p]The reason we are running for the Scleroderma Society is that Giles's son Reggie has this condition and has to undergo some quite nasty treatment for the next two years. It is a rare condition only 12,000 people in the UK suffer from it and it currently has no cure. The charity has no government funding and relies on support from ventures such as this. The majority of the money raised will go to research into finding a cure.[/p][p]Thank you so much for sponsoring us.[/p][p]Gi xx Si xx Will xx Paul xx Sophie xx Huw xx Claire xx Steven xx Nick xx Jo xx and Andy xx[/p][p]PS I am delighted that we have gone from the Fantastic Five, Super six, Magnificant Seven, The Nifty Nine to the Tasty Ten[/p]
