Rob's Rays of Sunshine Appeal
Hi I'm Rob Graham, Winchmore Hill resident. I am running the marathon in just under a month now for a fantastic charity in the name of Rays of Sunshine. The aim of the charity is brighten the lives of seriously sick or terminally ill children by granting wishes and putting on events for them. The charity receives no government funding so is fully dependent on the support of external fundraising such as mine.
A recent example of a wish granted was for a young boy to meet Batman and Spiderman!
I have been training hard since signing up to run the marathon back in January. Before agreeing to run the marathon on April 26th, I really didn't do any running. However in that time I have run over 325 miles, many of which have been around the hilly area we live in - along Wades Hill, the length of Green Lanes, numerous laps around Grovelands Park). I've have battled the changing elements of rain, wind and snow, had numerous blisters and have so far had one toe nail fall off!
There are 40,000 children and young people living in the UK with a serious or life-limiting illness. Any help that the people of N21 can give to bring some fun into the lives of just a few of these children would be greatly appreciated. You can make a donation via my fundraising page.
