The Marathon Minstrel hits the road...

Postby Candy » 16 Aug 2011, 12:56

As some of you know, I have got up from in front of my computer and started to lose some weight while getting fitter. A friend challenged me a few months ago to try to finish a Marathon, so here goes. The distance (42.2km / 26 miles) is a huge challenge and one that I will be trying my utmost to complete.

As is traditional with these things, this is an ideal opportunity for me to take money from my friends (that's you lot!) and family in aid of a worthy cause. Recently, we lost a family friend to Motor Neurone Disease. At the last, she was cared for by St. Catherine's Hospice (in Preston, England) who provided a dignified, caring and sensitive environment for this difficult time. By raising money for the Hospice, it will help other families in the similar circumstances to receive the support and care that she did.

Full details are of the marathon and the charity are on my JustGiving page. I hope you will be able to support this cause with me.

Three days to go and thanks to so many generous donations, the total raised so far stands at over £700 (over €800).

I'm very grateful to all those who have donated. Thank you. :)
