Running the London Marathon
posted on Monday, February 07, 2011 06:31 PM
I know, I know, lots of people run marathons, and lots of people fund raise for worthy causes all the time, and in that respect I am no different. It makes any form of fund raising a difficult task, but here is my goal and my cause and if you are able to support it I'd be hugely appreciative.
I currently have £160 which I need to increase by a factor of 10 to reach my goal.
Why I'm running the marathon
After spending a number of unsuccessful years trying to bag a free place in the London Marathon via the ballot I've finally committed to raising some money for my place.
Why I'm running for Survival International
As Founder of Make Travel Fair I've had a long association with encouraging an intelligent approach to travel; and part of that is learning about indigenous people around the world and understanding why their traditions, wisdom and existence must be respected.
Make Travel Fair has helped to share with the world some of the important stories that Survival International have to tell on behalf of tribal people worldwide. It will be a real pleasure to contribute to supporting their work by running the London Marathon.
