Four friends, hence forth known as the "Berlin Wallies" have signed up to do the Berlin Marathon to raise money for the Cystinosis Foundation UK. The marathon takes place on 25th September 2011 and the team would appreciate your support by SPONSORING THEM. Wally One, Neil Hutchison, takes up their story…
It was all Duncan’s idea…
"How do you fancy a trip to Berlin in September lads?"
"Sounds great Duncan, count me in"
"Good stuff, I’ll sign you up"
"Wait… sign me up?…what?…"
"Oh, did I not say? We’re doing the marathon"
And so, it came to pass that four fools, from all corners of Great Britain, would travel to one of Europe’s great cities in the autumn of 2011 in an attempt to tame the 26.2 miles of the Berlin Marathon.
But, of course, it’s all for a good cause. The team are raising money for Cystinosis Foundation UK, a charity close to the heart of one of the runners in particular, whose daughter Morven was diagnosed with this very rare genetic condition in November of last year.
We’ve all been training our little socks off for the past few months and your support will be a huge help in motivating us to keep putting one foot in front of the other in September.
