Marathon Sponsorship

This week I finally booked my place on the Guide Dogs┬ámarathon team for this year’s London Marathon. I’ve already received my running vest for the big day – photo to come.

Why Did I choose this charity as my main charity?

As well as having grandparents with vision impairments, I have had an affinity with the optical industry for some time through Blink, the software system targeted at opticians that I have developed and continue to promote. In addition, during the last 18 months I have personally experienced the joy & companionship that comes from owning a dog and I’ve also learnt to truly appreciate the gift of sight by being lucky enough to undergo Laser Eye Surgery in order to correct my slight vision defect.

Other Charities

I will be taking the opportunity of the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise funds and awareness for Guide Dogs, they will be my primary charity. However, in addition I would also like to raise a little something for 1, or maybe 2 further good causes – details to come.

Ways to contribute to these good causes

Information will be posted in due course but look out for my just giving page and a novel way to get more involved in my marathon experience.
