Hi, my name is Wayne and I've decided to raise money for The Donkey Sanctuary by running the Leicester marathon this Sunday.
I chose The Donkey Sanctuary because donkeys are one of the few remaining working animals around today and I've seen first hand the mistreatment they can receive during my tour in Afghanistan with the RAF Regiment.
I hope to not only raise money to help care for abused donkeys, but also raise awareness of the chairties that are available for anyone who would like to contribute.
This is my first attempt at an endurance event like this but I'm sure it won't be my last!
This year's marathon takes place on Sunday 26th October 2014, starting and finishing from Victoria Park, Leicester and starts at 9.15 am.
