The short version: My dad is running the York Marathon on 11th October to raise money for the amazing Sunshine & Smiles. It's his first full marathon and he's been training very hard (he's always sweaty when I see him). I've been doing my bit to help by sharing my bananas with him and waking him up as early as possible. It would be great if you could help too by making a small (or massive) donation! Thanks a lot! Theo (and his dad) The long version: At the start of the year, my dad and I decided to do some running to raise money for the wonderful charity that is Sunshine & Smiles. After some negotiation, we settled on a completely arbitrary number of 85.89 km. We decided to allocate this distance according to belly size with me covering 1.5 km in the form of the Leeds Mini Run and Dad taking care of the rest by tackling the White Rose Treble, encompassing the Sheffield Half Marathon, Leeds Half Marathon and finally the York Marathon. He's already done the first two and is now busy training for his first full marathon. We would both be thrilled to bits if you could make a donation to support our efforts. It really is for a fantastic cause. Sunshine and Smiles is a support network for children and young people who have Down Syndrome and their families in Leeds. The group was set up by parents as there wasn’t a specific support group for families with a child or young person with Down Syndrome in Leeds. They bring Sunshine and Smiles to the lives of families through providing a range of fun and therapeutic activities such as regular groups and trips, support and befriending to parents with a new baby, advice around additional challenges such as heart defects, feeding difficulties and other health issues. Your donations will make a real difference to many people's lives! Thanks a lot! Theo (and his dad)
