John and Dave,
We thank you both for going out of your way travelling 3 different countries and pushing yourselves to your limits.
We thank you for taking something you enjoy and using it to make a difference!
For inspiring others and opening their minds.
You are true heroes, selfless and beautiful.
John completed 4 marathons in 4 days in 3 countries and Dave joined him for the last 2. This was all for the 6 Uk children with DIPG travelling to Mexico for treatment.
In the Uk, there is simply no hope for our children, we are told to go and make happy memories as inevitably they will die. Well we are not prepared to give up on our beautiful little souls, there is hope, in Mexico they are trying all they can to help our children and come up with an answer.
Our Uk government currently does not support or fund this treatment and so we have to do it ourselves.
That is when people like John & Dave step in, the aim of this Marathon Madness was to raise awareness and gain some publicity. But John also decided they would raise some much needed funds for us all along the way! He set the target at £2000 and we are so thankful to all that donated as that target has been exceeded and his crowdfund page is now on £2500!!! 🙌🙌🙌
Thank you for all that got involved, running alongside John & Dave, words of encouragement, donations this all means so much to us.
John and Dave don’t ever stop being you! We look forward to seeing what you come up with next John as we know you too well to think this will be the last 💪💪💪
A big thank you to the businesses who sponsored John & Dave even though the pair were more than prepared to fund it themselves (reluctant to accept money for their travel & accommodation)
