My son, Jacob, received a Bone Marrow transplant a few years ago and I have signed up to Race for Life to try and give a little something back.
The race that I have signed up for is going be in Louth on Sunday 26th September. Unfortunately, this is the day that I am flying back from Qatar!
I have been looking forward to this race for some time and, rather than miss out, have been given permission to run the race remotely.
So, rather than a cool and gentle jog through Louth, I will be running the race in the 40 degree heat of Doha!
Although I am sure that you would have been generous with your donation anyway, please be extra generous to compensate for the hell I am going to be going through...
Thanks in advance
