London Marathon Heros

In just over a month from now, thousands of people will be filling the vehicle-free streets of London chasing each other around a pre-defined route with thousands more people cheering them on.  Anyone who has run the London Marathon previously often will talk of it being an amazing experience and how incredible encouraging they found it as complete strangers shouted their name and words of encouragement.

From the virtual sidelines of the blog, we'd like to give a massively loud shout out to Ben Grierson-Hill who is running the London Marathon on behalf of Give Aid Direct.   Most people run the marathon for a charity as that allows them to enter, however Ben was one of the lucky persons to be selected by the marathon lottery system to run the marathon without charity sponsorship.  However, Ben has a huge heart and thought he could raise money as well as run.  It has been an amazing encouragement to us to have Ben request to run and fundraise on our behalf - we are well-chuffed to have him support us.

April 13 is the day of the big run for Ben - we'll be there cheering him on from the sidelines and we invite you to join us.  Why don't you also follow this link to his marathon page where you can donate and even choose a song for him to listen to while he runs!
