About

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. It's been a real journey for me to get to this point. One year ago in March 2016 I was diagnosed morbidly obese with critically high blood pressure.
This gave me the push I needed to transform my life - I joined a gym and with dogged determination I have since worked out and run every single day and lost five stone.
I'm so pleased my journey has brought me to the point where I can use my transformation to benefit others in need.
Please donate what you can for these two worthy causes, both helping children towards a brighter future.

Event details

The London Marathon

I will be running more than 26 miles as part of the 2017 London Marathon on 23 April!

My first race was the Oxford Half Marathon and on a high from that, I signed up for a few more and have 4 now completed. It was my dream to run the biggie, the London Marathon and now I have the opportunity to do so for two amazing causes. I have been training hard and since November I have managed to clock up 500 miles - in fact I've just reached Edinburgh from London in terms of miles run!
Now its my turn to help give back. I would really appreciate you supporting me and two charities close to my heart.

Thank you.

Tom

I hope your marathon run yesterday went as planned. You look a bit different to when I last saw you, now in great shape. Will endeavour to catch up with you in the not too distant future. Well done Tom.
