My personal message:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...I used to be fit, healthy and have just one chin...

A New Hope

I'm running in a number of charity events over the coming year, starting with a 10K run in London's Hampton Court at the end of September 2008.

As well as raising stacks of cash for a number of charities, I also hope to get back in shape, get fit, yadda yadda yadda...sorry, er, yoda, yoda, yoda.

"Help me ObiWan Kenobi - you're my only hope!"

I beat my original target of £100 so I've decided to up the stakes somewhat - and try to raise £1000. Sponsor me and add your name to the list of donors below. Hell, why not share the love and add the address of your website, MySpace or Facebook page.

I'll even give very generous donors, bloggers and organisations an extra special mention right here in this text. An offer even the Empire wouldn't turn down...

The Force is everywhere...

Forward this link to EVERYONE you know: will be live from 10th Sept 2008 and accepting donations until 23rd Nov 2008.

All donations to the first run in September 2008 will be going to Cancer Research UK. I'm also going to donate my own cash to support the amazing work of the CWUHA.

"Meet my sisters: Obi-nice and Obi-hayv"

Are you lardy sci-fi fan? Got no cash but want to show your support? Are you doing a charity run and need sponsorship? Why not tell everyone about it on's Facebook Group?  Simply log onto Facebook and do a search for Or just use the Force.

May the Fat Force Fund be with you. Always...


- Success! Did the run, despite the searing heat. Next run is a half marathon on 12th October. Just two weeks after my 10K. Gulp. In the meantime, just got news of a blog by a member of the CWUHA convoy to Bulgaria. Go to:

25/09/08 - Thanks to the local newspaper Esher News for the mention. Hope it gets some people donating. Only three days left til the first big DarthWaster run!

- Blistering Boba Fett! I've just signed up to the Brooks 10K run in Brighton in November. So that's one long distance running event each month. Never thought I'd get this far...sheesh.

23/09/08 - Heard some initial reports about this year's trip to Bulgaria by the CWUHF. Incredible stuff, but they always need more donations. Please donate directly via the CWUHA website.

18/09/08 - Huge thanks to Cimex Media for the huge donation.

- gets a mention in New Media Age magazine's Gadfly column! Only £700+ to go....!

- Jibbering Jabba - I've only gone and signed up to the Royal Parks Run which is a HALF MARATHON!!! It was a last minute place and it's barely two weeks (!) after my Hampton Court 10K, but the prospect of running through London, past the London Eye etc, was just too good an opportunity to miss. I'm running for the London Sports Forum for Disabled People.

- DarthWaster gets a mention on US news blog Thanks guys!

- You beauty! Thanks to male grooming and skin care site Naked Man Shop at Cheers again Nick!

- A huge, HUGE thank you to Juliet of Bluebear PR for donating a staggering £50 to the fund! Absolutely brilliant - thanks so much to everyone at Bluebear PR.

- Thanks to the I.Z. Reloaded news blog for mentioning my plight, sorry, fun run! I need all the traffic I can get.

07/09/08 - After running 5k every two days for the last two months, I finally tried running 10k for training. Only I ran twice that distance and then some - 22k! But then I have been running the equivalent of a marathon every two weeks...sheesh.
