It’s the day after the morning before. No hangover as a result of my birthday but I am very tired and my knees ache.
Yesterday I celebrated my birthday at the pub with some friends…oh and ran 13.1 miles. Two hours, 10 minutes and 20 seconds of pounding the pavement in Brighton as part of the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon Website.
Much more than that though, as things stand today together we’ve raised £730.18 for the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI).
If you’ve not already had a look please check out my blog post about why SCI is such an amazing charity.
This is enough money to pay for over 1450 treatments. That means we’ve helped protect over 1450 for a year from diseases that can cause anaemia, impaired growth, bladder cancer, kidney malfunction or liver and spleen damage.
There is still time to get donations in by sponsoring me on Just Giving.
On Monday 9th March I will share the final total and the amazing impact this has had on the work carried out by the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative.
For now I just want to say a huge, heart felt thank you to everyone who sponsored me, helped with my training and spurred me on. Without all of you this would not have been possible, I’d have collapsed half way through and a lot less people would be receiving treatments!
I leave you with some snapshots of the day.
