I'd like to raise as much money as possible for JDRF, a type 1 diabetes research foundation. They help people cope with type 1 and improve their lives. Also for Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service who help support children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions – and their families – throughout the Berkshire area.

If you want to follow my journey you can at -

I chose JDRF as my brother has type 1 diabetes and i see the effect it has. Its not curable, yet, and it's a thing you can't just forget, it's an every day thing, it starts when he wakes up and again before he goes to bed. Hopefully with the money raised we can help him and many others around the uk to cope with it and live better lives.

I have also chosen Alexander Divine Children's Hospice Service as they do an amazing job in Berkshire helping children and their families cope with life changing illnesses and conditions.

My main aim is the Beyond the Ultimate Jungle Ultra marathon. It's a 5 day event, totalling 230km through the amazon rainforest, and as everyone knows I'm not the greatest fan of running... yet!

Along the way i have 3 other Ultras booked to get done ! 

11th Nov 2017  - Gower 56.5km 
11th February 2018 - Brecon to Cardiff 70km
23rd - 25th March 2018 - Jurassic Coast Ultra 125km
and the main event....
3rd - 7th June 2018 - Peru Jungle Ultra 230km 

So that's a total of 481.50 km of running
*(this doesn't include training runs...)
