Running for a Cause
Twitter hashtag #R4AGC
On Sunday 23rd April I have been given the privilege of running the Virgin London Marathon and in doing so, raise some funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. After being convinced by my brother that running a marathon would be a great experience for both of us to complete together. I expressed an interest to try and gain a charity place. I got the phone call on Friday 6th January from the Macmillan Team that a place was available to me.
Unfortunately for so many of us cancer has played some part in our lives; either directly with our families and friends or indirectly with colleagues and friends and their own families. I am taking immense pride in not only trying to complete the marathon but more importantly to me, to try and raise as much money for a such supportive and fantastic group of people as possible.
