Amazing London Marathon Challenge by OF

ORIGINAL STORY : John Barton (Z74-81) for the first time since he asked to be sponsored for a 15-mile sponsored walk when he was 10 is looking for sponsors for the London Marathon on 24 April 2016.  This is a major physical challenge for John as he can’t run anymore and his walking “isn't so hot either”.  John has two progressive neurological conditions: Parkinson's and Charcot-Marie-Tooth.

John will be raising money for Parkinson's UK (75%) and CMT UK (25%) and he would really appreciate any donations, however big or small, for this amazing challenge he is undertaking.

Please visit his donation page for more details on the challenge and how to donate.
