I have been given a space in the London Marathon 2011 to run for SPARKS, a childrens charity which is a very very worthwile cause.

Please please visit my Justgiving website and donate now, please visit and help fund more research for children┬┤s illnesses.

My website is please visit and donate please please

Below is a part of their website that should explain it all for you. (

Our Mission
Our mission is to help all babies be born healthy and stay healthy. We do this by funding high quality medical research into childhood diseases.

The facts
Approximately 1 in 30 babies in the UK are born with a health condition that will affect them and their families for the rest of their lives. For instance, every year:
Pre-eclampsia kills around 6 women and several hundred babies in the UK
Spina bifida affects around 150,000 children born around the world
Neuroblastoma is one of the leading cause of cancer deaths in 1 to 5 year-olds
Leukaemia is diagnosed in around 400 children in the UK

How we've helped
Our most recent medical achievements include:
* Neuroblastoma Sparks-funded research has identified a gene that may protect against all cancers including neuroblastoma, one of the biggest cancer killers of children under five
* Club foot - our researchers are leading the world's biggest study into club foot identifying the key genes that rob many children of a fully active life
* Spina bifida - our researchers have identified genes that may be linked to severe Spina bifida
* Cerebral palsy - we are contributing to the development of brain cooling equipment that is reducing the incidence of brain injury and cerebral palsy in babies.

A big thankyou to all those that visit and donate.
