Two causes close to my heart, thousands of miles from each other but with a common denominator, CHILDREN require my indulgence and your HELP! Orphaned African children and N.I. children with cerebral palsy all need love, caring and our money to help support them. Those of you who know me will guess I will give this latest challenge my all. I am on target to run more than 1500mls over the 30wks in training, albeit with TMB (too many birthdays!) associated aches and pains before I get to the start line. I only hope if things go belly-up over the race week you all won’t feel short changed as all donations will be divided equally between the two registered charities :)
