Don’t forget, all the marathon training is to help support the great work that the guys at Whizz-Kidz do, helping disabled children become more mobile. The clip below from their web-site gives some details on the work they do – please have a read:
These guys have several hundred runners in the London Marathon raising money for them and it is their biggest fund raising event of the year. They also really help support the runners whilst fund raising with marathon training sessions, regular newsletters and getting people involved in other activities (e.g. Christmas carols). Some pics below from the Christmas carols at Fulham Broadway shopping centre last weekend. We went along after the carols at the Royal Albert Hall and sung some more for another couple of hours. The guys from Whizz-Kidz were there from 10am until 7pm with their running volunteers coming along for 2 hour sessions throughout the day and we raised almost £1,400.
The little Nobles and Nic also helped out with mum and dad coming along for a little bit as well.
So could what be any easier? Donating. With the wonders of modern technology – and the services from Just Giving all you need to do is send a quick text message (care of a cool new service set up with Vodafone) from your mobile with the amount you would like to donate to 70070 and the code VCKN89. You receive a text message receipt from them and can even tick a box to allow Whizz-Kidz to get back Gift Aid from HMRC.
Don’t buy that extra 1/2 pint at the pub – please send a quick text message and help make a real difference to these children’s lives.
