Marcus runs London Marathon 2017 for Muffins DreamA fundraising project by Marcus Barr
Hello, thank you for visiting my page. This April I am running the London Marathon to raise money for two charities very close to my family: Muffins Dream Foundation & Diabetes UK, please help me support these two amazing charities.
This page is for Muffins Dream Foundation, I have a separate page for Diabetes UK: www.virginmoneygiving.com/mbarr
Muffins Dream Foundation is a local Charity based in Basingstoke covering Hampshire, West Berkshire, Reading & Surrey Heath. They help children and young people with any life changing illness and disability; from life limited to learning difficulties. Putting their Ability into Disability. They offer disabled accessible activity days, boredom buster bags for long-stay children in hospital, make hospital visits, offer sibling services, one2one support, baby sitting & tea parties, parent support, attend meetings & offer support in most situations. In short doing all the things so desperately needed but fall through the cracks of the health services.
My future daughter-in-law was born with spinabifida & suffered multiple conditions & complications throughout her life, needing a great many operations, hospital stays, & learning to walk over nine times. Five years ago she started Muffins Dream Foundation to help children & young people with any life changing illness & disability. The charity has grown at an incredible rate & does some amazing work - putting Ability into Disability. I have helped with some of their events and seen the great work they do.
The London Marathon is one of life’s great challenges, but is nothing compared to the challenge of living & caring for children & young people with life changing illness or disability.
I secured my own place in the marathon and have paid all entry fees, so everything donated goes to charity. Localgiving is not for profit & donations will be quickly passed to Muffins Dream Foundation.
I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
