I may not be doing my own personal challenge to raise money for charity, but many other people do. And when the challenge is great enough then I’m more than happy to support them.
Well… you can’t get a lot greater than this – Martin Cox from Nottingham will be riding from Lands End to John O’Groats and then back again, all in ten days. He’s looking to raise around £180,000 which will be split between 7 charities.
If you only sponsor one person this year, Martin has to be pretty near the top of your list.
I first came across Martin through his Twitter account @lejogle2012 (Lands End, John O’Groats, Lands End – geddit?) and while I’m pretty pleased with myself when I swim a few miles I regularly see updates from Martin about his 50, 60, 70 or more miles training sessions. His effort and determination definitely put me in the shade and he is definitely someone you should sponsor if you are so inclined.
This amazing effort starts on May 21st and you can follow his progress here.
