So this Sunday my other half will be running the London Marathon which makes up a tiny 4-5% of his overall 1000km Challenge. He is running to help raise money and awareness for the National Eczema Society in order to pave a way into finding the inevitable cure for this horrible, and often debilitating condition.
1000km is one hell of a challenge! Many people run one 10k or one marathon NOT 1000KM!!! That's the equivalent of 621.37 miles which is around the equivalent of going from Plymouth (South of England) to Inverness (Scottish Highlands)! That is one hell of a way really isn't it?! Not to mention it would take 209 hours which is basically over 8 days of running non-stop. MIND BLOWING?!
Every weekend, come rain or shine, and even snow, he is lacing up his trainers and running anything from a 10k (worth 1%) or a half marathon or full marathon. He is now over 1/4 of the way there with 285.94km under his belt. However despite his best efforts has only raised a measley 22% of his £6000 target. Imagine how much research can be carried out with £6000?
In order to sponsor Shane you can donate as much or little as you feel appropriate to http://www.justgiving.com/shanes1000km or alternatively you can text "RACE55 £x" (£1-£10) to 70070.
Please help to spread his mighty, epic challenge. Thank you :)
Much love to any of you who do sponsor, it really is a worthy cause!
