Planning to run a marathon for charity? Wondering how you can go from “fundraising is out of my comfort zone” to smashing your goal? Trying to get into a coveted sold-out big marathon or half and thinking about getting in through a charity team, but aren’t sure how to chose the right one? Just starting your journey as a runner with no idea where it might lead? There is something for you here.

In 1996, as a happy coincidence, I started running and started a new career in fundraising! In 1997, I ran my first marathon and raised my first $5,000 as a charity runner. Succeeding at both was life changing, and I have been working ever since to incorporate fundraising into my running and running into my fundraising.

Everyone should run a marathon – and everyone should run for charity! Stay connected to learn more about my journey, and how I can help you on yours; how to choose a charity, how to make fundraising fun, and what activities will help you exceed your goal.
