Last-ditch begging: sponsor me. Please?


By the time this goes live, I'll be in Germany, making final preparations to run the 40th BMW Berlin Marathon. I've been in training for the last six months, and who knows? Maybe I'll make it all the way around the 42,000 metre course. Mo Farah, eat your heart out!

I'm raising funds for the Alzheimer's Society - I lost my grandmother to dementia last year, and wanted to do something exceptional in her memory.

If you'd care to donate, you can do so by clicking here. Anything you can spare will go towards looking after people who suffer from Alzheimer's, and to looking for a cure.

Thank you!
