I know this is a blatant abuse of media, so please excuse this post, but please feel free to forward it on to generous people you may know of
In October, a team of 21 very mixed ability runners from B2net will be participating in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, London. I will be one of the “very” mixed ability runners along with my fiancé. I have never run a half marathon before, and despite doing a fair amount of training, a previous slipped disc injury means I will be taking the run fairly easy. I’m not entirely sure what I’ve let myself in for!
We are raising money for CLEFT, a fairly new charity which is focused on research into the causes of cleft lip and palates and post-operative care and support.
Cleft lip and palates can cause huge distress to patients and those who care for them and the charity aims to fund projects that improve techniques in alleviating and reducing suffering. The charity raises money to fund projects at home and abroad, with varied objectives such as research into how and why clefts occur, how it affects speech and growth and purchasing essential medical equipment.
Please support our efforts by making a donation, large or small, at our JustGiving page http://www.justgiving.com/kranz; it’s secure and very easy to use.
To find out more about how your donation will help CLEFT please visit http://www.cleft.org.uk/your_donations.html
Thanks in advance from the B2net Royal Parks Team.
