Registered Charity No.1120915

I've always had an ambition to run a marathon, and when the organisers of the Southampton Half Marathon (which I've run the last two years) offered the chance of doing the route twice and turning into the full marathon, I decided to go for it!

Training has been somewhat hard work but I'm fairly confident now that I can actually complete it! I'm aiming to do the course in 4 hours which should be just about achievable.

I'm fundraising for Karis Kids, which is a local charity Lynne and I have supported for many years; essentially we sponsor a Ugandan family who have lost their father, and the mother has also taken in her sister's children who were orphaned. We have built up a great relationship with Jane and the children through exchanging letters, photos and gifts, and she has moved from the slums of Kampala out to a small village where they grow a variety of crops. Water security is a particular problem though, so we are hoping somehow to help provide clean water.

Thank you for giving!
