Howard to run the London marathon for the RNLI!
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. Some say I'm crazy, others say well done, some just laugh. But I'm inclined to say yeah I'll do it. I'm running the London Marathon in April 2009. I plan to raise £2100 for the RNLI. Ive been a RNLI Lifeboat crew member for 3 years. In that time I have rescued numerous casualties from kite surfers, wind surfers, broken down boats and some we unfortunately haven't been able to rescue. I'm on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week and when my pager goes off I drop everthing to go and help that person at sea.
I wouldn't be able to rescue these people if it wasn't for the training I've had over the years. It's people like yourselves that donate money that keeps the RNLI going.
On race day I will be putting the names of everyone who has sponsored me onto my t-shirt. IF I get on TV I may well mention your name. Please help me raise this money every penny helps. A huge thankyou to everyone locals and tourists who have kindly donated £450 so far money keeps flowing into my donation bucket that is in the Lifeboat Station.
Thanks very much
