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 http://www.justgiving.com/Duane-Smith please visit and donate please please

Below is a part of their website that should explain it all for you. (www.sparks.org.net)

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.
