We're Running the Flora London Marathon 2008

12 years ago...

Flora London marathon 2008, Sunday 13th April 2008 915am

My wife Sarah and I, Matthew are going to be pounding the streets of London in a few weeks time for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

We are ordinary people hoping to raise an extroardinary amount to help this amazing charity in their support of the 30,000 babies, children and adults affected by this often life threatening condition, many who never get to reach adulthood.

They have done so much for us as a family as our youngest brother Graham, 15, has the most vicious form of the disease, but you'd never know it, he puts so much into life and is the life and soul of the family. The support they have provided us and other familes, who give everything they have, is phenomenal.


Please dig deep and give a little, ( or a lot!) and help us raise 2000 to find a cure

Thank you so much, Matthew and Sarah, Surbiton 2008

P.S We are also looking for shirt sponsorship from local businesses if you are interested for a nominal donation to the value you feel it is worth. If your business would like to advertise to the millions watching across the globe on television or a potential customer in the crowd, please contact me by email at:
