`m running the London village marathon in April for the STEPS foundation which is a charity that helps kids with lower limb disabilities.I chose STEPS because my daughter contracted MRSA when only 3 weeks old and as a result has one leg shorter than the other and no hip socket.STEPS are a charity close to my heart who do great work with kids all over the world.Please dig deep and sponsor me.

This will be the first running of the London Marathon for me, after three attempts I finally got a place with my club.

Ive decided to raise money for NSPCC which needs all the help we can give it. Too many children are still being abused, bullied or ignored and hopefully raising funds by running the marathon will help make a difference.

Please give all you can.

Thank you

I'm running the London marathon for the first time in 2006, raising money for Guide Dogs.

I chose Guide Dogs, as my mom lost her sight 7 years ago, at the age of 61, and was eventrually partnered with her guide dog "Unity". After my mom being limited to where she could go on her own and what she could do, Unity has given her a new lease of life. They now both do voluntary work two or three times a week, helping other people who have lost their sight.

The FLM 2006 will be my first ever Marathon, and I'm running for the Down's Syndrome Association. It's a great charity which helps people with Down's Syndrome live full and rewarding lives - something we all deserve. I have a one year old niece, Katie, and I want her to achieve the very best that she is capable of.

This is my first marathon and I've been lucky to get a place with CLIC Sargent. CLIC Sargent's role is to try and help children that are diagnosed as suffering from Cancer or Leukaemia and their families cope and keep life as normal as possible.

I'm sure you'll agree that it is a worthwhile cause and if you can spare some cash you know it would go to a good cause.

Thanks for reading

I will be running my first FLM and I running for Cancer Research UK. I was 14.8 stone in August I am now 11.8.
Why was I fat, coz I was lazy.
I decided to use my health to try to help others, who knows one day it could be me.
My neighbour, my wife have had scares and my uncle died a couple of years ago.
I am determined to do this for him.
Please help me raise a few quid (£4,500 target).

My mum was diagnosed with cancer in February this year.On the 1st of December she sadly lost her fight with this terrible desease.I was determined to try to help others who are going through the nightmare of seeing a loved one suffer in this way and
so will be running in my first ever marathon in London next April along with 2 fellow workmates for Macmillan Cancer Relief.
We have so far shaved our heads and posed naked for a calendar to raise the golden bond money of £5100.Other things are planned as we'd like to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause.

HI. I'll be running my first marathon ever (the FLM) and I'll be raising money for Life Education Centres.

Life Educational Centres is a national charity that works with schools and whose mission is to educate children about the effects of drugs, including alcohol and tobacco. They do a fantastic job, but they also need as much support as possible to keep working on their projects. This is why I have decided to run for them.

If you are so kind and would like to sponsor me you can donate online at the following address:

I am running the FLM for the first time, for the Leukaemia Research Fund. Ever since my Mum was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphatic Leukaemia, four years ago, I've been drawn to the amazing work that the Leukaemia Research Fund do.

If anyone was interested in sponsoring me, or know anyone that might, please donate at the following address:


Thank you for reading this and good luck to all those running!

I am running the FLM for Arthritis care. I chose this charity as several of my family members suffer from the crippling effects of the disease. It seems fitting to use running to raise the money as I am so lucky to be able to run when so many, both old and young, struggle with walking.

Fund raising is as much of a challenge as training so I hope some of you out there respond to my plea for sponsorship. My web page is www.justgiving.com/lesleykennedy
Thankyou in anticipation

Hi there. I too am running the FLM for the first (and last?) time raising money for Cancer Research Uk in memory of my brother who died at 42 in late 2004.
Not only that, I've also put myself down for the Wokingham, Fleet and Reading Half Marathons too! (good training runs?)
If anyone has a few pennies to spare (each and every one DOES make a difference) please go to:


(If you are running and want a friendly thread see FLM 2006: closer to 4:00 than 4:30)

Second marathon same charity same reason

I am taking part in the Flora London Marathon 2006 in aid of Oxfam.

I have spent all my working life in education and I know that education can make a real difference to a child's future. It is Oxfam’s aim that all children living in poverty will achieve their right to a good quality basic education and adults will have access to sufficient educational opportunities to help overcome their poverty. Oxfam's new project to rebuild and support schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo will make a real difference to many children's lives. Please help me raise £1000 to contribute to those children's futures. Thank you.
