Welcome to the forum Adrian. People starting new threads asking for donations never goes down particularly well because if everyone who needed to raise money for VLM posted a thread, the site would be full of new threads. In addition, as it's a running forum, you can bet that lots of people that are already known and have interacted with the site have already pitched first so you are a bit late If you want to join in the forum, look for a thread and I'm sure you'll be welcomed or find the fundraising thread and post your pitch on there or wait for April till the one thread that forumites do throw money in a pot for is started. But just spruiking for money on a forum is the same as spruiking on a street or in a pub. If you don't do it there, why do it on here?
Welcome Adrian. I do suggest you 'get the word out' to your non-running friends and colleagues though as it's a little bit like "preaching to choir" over here. I wish you well on your journey and am delighted that running is giving you a new sense of balance and vibrancy. Cheers, TD.
