Hi Folks,

I'm a newbie runner who has done a few parkruns and will be entering my first race on Sunday May 11th, the Bristol 10k.

I am aiming to raise £250 for CLIC Sargent, the charity for children and young people with cancer. Please help contribute to this good cause by visiting my just giving donation page at: http://www.justgiving.com/alex-purchase/

Many thanks in advance,

Hello all.


Last month I completed Brighton Marathon on 6th April, the following Sunday - I completed Virgin London Marathon - 2 Marathons in a week.

Both were run in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care - a brilliant charity that uses the much needed funds to support patients in their own homes at the end of their lives.  Just £20 allows them to put a nurse in a patients home for one hour.

I've gone over the halfway point of my target.  So any further sponsors would be massively appreciated.  Even just a quid!

You can add your sponsorship by using either:



OR text CSMC78 £1 to 70070

(using the text donation will deduct the amount from your next phone bill... you can also change the £1 to £2, £3, £5 or £10)

Thank you once again in advance!

Hi all,

In September I'll be running the Thames Path 100k for Evelina Children's Heart Organisation (ECHO). This is a charity that supports familes who have children with congenital heart disease.

My son suffered heart failure 12 days after being born and was later diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. With no current cure to this heart disease, only 50% of children survive 2 years with their own heart.

ECHO have been brilliant to us over the past 8 months with us and my son who has spent many weeks in and out of hospital and suffered further heart failures. They have helped give us hope, support and kept us the right side of insanity.

I use to be a regular on the forums, but sadly this has had to take more of a back seat with my first foray in to parenthood.

If anyone is interested in learning more about the charity or donating, I have set up a justgiving page at:


Thanks for reading,

Having experienced how devastating dementia can be to someone you love and respect and the effect it has on the rest of the family has motivated me to raise some funds for this debilitating condition.My Nan was diagnosed with dementia 7 years ago and sadly passed away last year aged 98 years old. She in my hero.

I am running the Wolverhampton Half Marathon in memory of her!
