100 miles plus for Edgar’s Gift
In September 2016 i will be attempting to run Equinox24 SOLO for a third time. Previous attempts have seen me run 75 and 100 miles, respectively. This time i aim to cover 112 miles in the allocated 24 hour time frame. As always I will be completing this event for charity – this time i have chosen Edgar’s Gift.
Edgar’s Gift is a charity set up in 2010 in memory of Ben Edkins, who passed away following a year long fight with cancer. He was just 25 when he died after battling Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of muscle cancer. The charity was founded by Ben’s parents Julie and Neil Bradman, alongside Ben’s family and friends – all of whom Ben influenced and had a special and positive effect on their lives. Edgar’s Gift aims to raise money to enable us to provide special days out, unique experiences and luxury gifts for young adults aged 18-30 who are suffering from cancer.
Any donations would be much appreciated no matter how small. Making a wish come true for someone battling cancer is an enormous GIFT so I really do appreciate everyones kindness who makes the effort and time to donate. I will keep everyone posted of my training progress and also the final result next September
