Over the years one of the biggest things to get me motivated has been to commit to raising money for various charities through running (more often than not with sticks). Over the passed 10 years I've raised thousands of pounds for charities such as: Help for Heroes, Combat Stress, CRUK, Mo Farah Foundation, OCDUK, Childline, Shelter and more recently for a friends daughter through Gabriella's Grab for Independence.
I'm passionate about doing the best to make a difference in the world. So much of the time I feel helpless about people who suffer around the world and how little I can do about it. Below are the three areas where I'm helping people.
