Jason Barton raises funds for British Lung Foundation as he pounds the streets of London
Barton has now started the arduous task of putting in the many miles of training that is required to run in a marathon and although he’s pretty fit already, the demands of a marathon running are quite different from those of a football.
“I’m running the London Marathon 2015 for the British Lung Foundation in memory of my father, John Barton, who sadly passed away three years ago,” Barton told Crowborough Athletic’s website.
“This is going to be a massive challenge to raise £1,750 and to complete my first ever Marathon, but hopefully I will be able to do both with your generous support and donations.
“Every penny counts and is really appreciated, the money you donate will go to extend the lives of many people, as my father was taken from us far too young at the age of 66.
“Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
“I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.”
Barton and many thousands of heroic fund raisers will pound the streets of London on Sunday, 26 April 2015.
