Dharmesh is running the London Marathon – 26 April 2009


Many of you have sponsored me in the past, most notably for sleeping on the streets of London, and I thank you again for your past support. The money raised was for NCH (National Childrens Home) – now called Action For Children – http://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/. This year I decided to step up the game and do a bit more in return for your sponsorship by running the London Marathon for the first time !

So why this charity again? Well it’s simple, I believe children are our future, and that every child deserves to enjoy life and see a bright future. I’m sure everyone reading this page will be able to give this to their children, but there are so many families and children without families in the UK where this is simply not the case. This is where Action For Children steps in, to provide the care and support for the most vulnerable children in our society: children that are disabled, children that live in difficult circumstances, children that can’t live with their birth families or children experiencing severe difficulties in their lives. 

It’s a great charity, doing some amazing things on a daily basis, please be generous in your support. In return I will do my best to complete the marathon which I have already started training for (running 2-4 times a week, between 15-30 miles a week). Currently I’m on target to complete over 1000 miles in training runs by the time of the marathon in April next year.

However, if you like to see me do more, let me know how much it’s worth and I will certainly consider it ;o) For example running in a specific costume, shaving my head or waxing my legs.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Action for Children gets your money faster. Please tick the Gift Aid Box, it means the taxman also puts in a contribution as a % of whatever you sponsor me, it cost you no extra.

So please sponsor me now at:
