My personal message:

Hello!  Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

As you will probably know, I'm training for the Blenheim Palace 10K run in aid of Cancer Research on Sunday 5 October 2008.  I got interested in running about eight months ago and have become addicted to it throughout this year, losing a lot of weight and being healthier and happier in the process.

So I figured I might as well do some proper events:  this race will be my first, and I'm doing it mainly to prove to myself that I can!  As such, I'm not setting myself a particular goal time-wise (it'll be a personal best no matter what!), nor a specific target for the money raised.  Your support is very much appreciated by me in whatever form.  Any money which you are able to spare will be very gratefully received by Cancer Research.  I have set £100 as the initial target because that will be 1p for every metre travelled (yes, I know I'm a geek like that).

You can use this page to sponsor me.  Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure.  It?s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Cancer Research UK gets your money faster and, if you?re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thank you very much for reading!
