Jason – My Marathon Fundraising Story
Jason’s dream has been to run the London Marathon and Jason is part of our 2019 Team CP Sport London Marathon team. We are delighted that he has chosen Cerebral Palsy Sport to support with his marathon challenge and we caught up with him in between his training to talk to him about why he is taking on the challenges of the street’s of London.
Why do you want to run the London Marathon?
I want to run London Marathon because I want to raise awareness about cerebral palsy and raise funds to help in any way I can. I have a big following (6,000+) in social media which can also help to raise awareness.
What does supporting Cerebral Palsy Sport mean to you?
Supporting Cerebral Palsy Sport allows me to change the lives of the unfortunate but beautiful souls and give them a chance to excel as far as possible.
Why have you chosen Cerebral Palsy Sport to run for?
Supporting CPS allows me to change the lives of the unfortunate but beautiful souls and give them a chance to excel as far as possible. I chose to run for Cerebral Palsy Sport as I think more awareness needs to be created of Cerebral Palsy and more people need to know that people with Cerebral Palsy can also lead a normal and fulfilling life if we give them a chance to.
How is the training going and what are you enjoying the most?
Running is a very deep rooted habit that i have, so training has been continuing without much difficulty. I enjoy challenging myself more in this fundraising effort by running 1 mile per £ raised
What time do you hope to achieve for the London Marathon?
I hope I can beat my Personal Best by achieving to finish in under 3 hours 50 minutes
What do you believe to be the biggest challenges/highlights in undertaking this challenge?
The biggest challenge in undertaking this fund raising is to convince people here that even though I am raising funds for an overseas charitable body and not for a local body, everyone deserves a chance in a better lives and we are still helping fellow human beings.
