Running for a Good Cause

The London Marathon is coming up this weekend. I suspect a fair few of you will be gearing up to run, know someone who is, or are just glad that you’re not running 26 miles on Sunday morning!

As is traditionally the case with the London Marathon, apart from being an elite sporting event, many run in the name of good causes. One of those is Sarah Chalmers of Cobham. Sarah will be raising money and awareness for the Harrison’s Fund.

The fund is named after local 6 year old boy, Harrison, a friend of Sarah’s son who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a disease, which leads sufferer’s muscles to deteriorate at alarming rates, eventually leading to the loss of all muscle function in the body. The Fund was set up by Harrison’s parents, Alex and Donna, to help promote research into fighting Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

You can find out more about Harrison’s Fund and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy here. I am sure you will agree it is a very worthy cause. If you feel able to support Sarah’s sponsored marathon run, please visit her site here. I wish her the very best of luck on Sunday!
