The Challenge

Throughout this year i am running 4 marathons Blackpool - Apr 13 Belfast - May 13 IOM - Aug 13 Chester - Oct 13 Doing a parachute jump - May 13 Trekking along the Jordan Desert - Nov 13

The Charity

My dear father Shaun passed away from the disease in Mar 2009 and in Mar 2001 it took the life of my father in law Clive Adamson. Bowel Cancer IOM does such great work here on the island, raising awareness and encouraging people to talk about it and provide support to cancer patients and their families. It's a charity very close to my heart.

The Training

I'm doing alot of road running and cycling to keep fitness levels up and also when i get time i walk up the nearby hills which not only again helps with the fitness but provides beautiful views of the island. The challenges so far have been tough but very rewarding and extra special being able to share it with my family. So far the support and publicity my local paper has given my challengers has been amazing but more importantly it raises awareness of the disease and promotes the charity.
