I am running the London Marathon for the 2nd time and will be raising vital funds for SENSE deafblind charity once more, last year l had a fantastic experience doing the marathon, yes l know it was a HOT day and yes l did lose 6 toenails and the more l dwell on it the more l am now aware of how much it took out of me physically for many weeks after BUT it is WORTH DOING. Memories really do stay forever l won't be breaking any records but l hope to complete safely and enjoy the experience as much as l can. 

Running for SENSE makes all the HARD TRAINING worthwhile.

Please visit my page at : http://www.justgiving.com/micky-ives 

Good Luck to everyone taking part ENJOY xX

On April 13th, instead of going along to the East Anglian derby to see Norwich City take on Ipswich Town I'm running the London Marathon instead!

It'll be the first derby game I've missed in ten years, and I've opted to run for Sue Ryder Care - just round the corner from my childhood home in Peterborough is Thorpe Hall, a fine example of the facilities they offer.

Both Norwich City and Ipswich Town have kindly arranged signed shirts for me to help with my sponsorship - any donation will be entered into a draw to win one of them!

I've already running my little socks off, let alone on the big day itself

I'm running for the British Heart Foundation which does a huge amount of work to research and educate us about heart disease and has come so far yet still so far to go.  My Dad died of a heart attack in 1998, which we believe was due to Deep Vein Thrombosis after a long haul flight, however DVT wasn't really known about back then unlike now.  Had the research been done, my Dad just might be here now to support me in my challenge.  I'm supporting the BHF so that other lives can be extended and saved. 

The smallet amount will be greatly received and will be matched by Barclays Bank.

Thank you.

I am going to be running my first Flora London Marathon this year. I am running for the fantastic charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each day in the UK, 6 teenagers will find out they have cancer. Many get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment alongside children or old people.

TCT provides specialist units in NHS hospitals for teenagers with cancer. As well as superior medical facilities and state-of-the-art equipment, units provide an environment where teenagers can meet others in a similar situation, allowing patients to build friendships and mechanisms to cope with their disease.

TCT has built 7 units. The concentration of medical expertise can improve chances of survival by 15%. Each costs over £2 million to build and TCT needs enough so that every teenager with cancer has access to one, should they need it.

As well as building units, TCT funds an education team to visit schools to talk about TCT and cancer, a Professor of teenage and young adult cancer medicine and a support network for bereaved families.

Please email me if you have any questions...

Or please sponsor me if you see this of a worthy cause...

running for a local MS therapy centre who provide care and support for MS sufferers. My wife was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting MS back in 2004 so this is a chance to do something positive that could end up benefitting her.

My new husband and I (we got married last September) are running for Children with Leukaemia. A very close friend of ours has been diagnosed with lymphoma and it could strike her down at any time. Imagine if that happened to a child? My husband is a computational chemist (before you snigger, he doesn't have a clipboard and different colour pens in his lab coat!! He's a muscly tough guy!) at a biotech company working on cancer targets -  he gets to see how cancer affects people first hand, and spends his days trying to beat it!

I am a formerly obese couch potato who has used running to lose almost five stone and go from a size 20 to a size 8, beating a thirty a day fag habit to become an international lightweight rower. A back injury has put paid to my rowing for a while, but I can still run, and FLM 2008 will be my first marathon.

 Please sponsor us!! www.bmycharity.com/teamtaylor

Also running for Children with Leukaemia.  Notice Little Miss Naughty ran Reading Half at the weekend, as did I, but I wasn't wearing a costume!  My best friend's colleague's daughter has just been given the awful news - let's try and beat this.


To everyone running for whatever charity - GOOD LUCK!

Getting sick children better
  • Every 30 minutes, a baby is born with a genetic disorder
  • Today 4 families have been told the devastating news that their child has cancer
  • Each week 30 children are struck down by meningitis and 3 die
  • There are over 5,000 known rare disorders. They affect children and adults and many are long-term, progressive and disabling.
