Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm no long-legged, skinny athlete! In fact, 2 years ago, I couldn't run 100 yds. Now, I'm undertaking the challenge of my life, running the Great North Run 2013. This is the biggest half-marathon race in the world, with 55,000 participants.
I am running in memory of my brother David, who passed away in January 2012. I have chosen to run for two children’s charities: Thompson Child and Family Focus in the USA and the NSPCC (National Society for the Provention of Cruelty to Children) in the UK. Both organizations provide services for abused and neglected children.
These children are at risk from suffering the effects of their abuse for the whole of their lifetime, including depression, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, imprisonment, low self-esteem, promiscuity, prostitution, self-harm and suicide.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. All donations on this site will go to Thompson Child and Family Focus.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
