Adventure Running Dad

A little bit about me… I am 38 years old, I work in an office and spend most of my time on a computer. With a fairly young family, I do not have much time for training so I have to find opportunities to do it. In the distant past (2008), having never done any real running, I decided to do a half marathon (Hastings). I trained but lacked motivation and did not get the conditioning I needed. On the race I hurt myself and although I finished the race, I could not run for another 3 months. By the time that I had healed, I had lost all my fitness and gave up. From then I did not do any real training until 2013. My wife was pregnant with our daughter, I was always tired and bigger than I wanted. I didn’t want to be tired anymore and so I decided to train and do a Tough Mudder the following year. Since 2014 I have completed 7 Tough Mudders and 3 Rat Race Dirty Weekends and a Spartan Super. The longest of any of these races is 20 miles which was really hard, but I made it injury free. I feel like I have learnt a lot since starting out and my sister put an idea in my head. She wanted to do something special and she had heard about a race called the Ultra Tour of Arran. I didn’t think too much about it and when I did start to read properly about it I realised it was 100km spread over 2 days. That’s crazy! I thought about this more and more and as I thought about it, the more it felt like I would be able to do it. I looked at the other events that Rat Race do and decided it would be most cost effective to get the season pass… Sadly, my sister thought it was too crazy, but I entered anyway… This season pass has shorter and longer races. To be clear, I have never run a marathon distance or longer. My daughter’s school is great, but could do with some improved facilities and I am keen to support the school so that they are able to do more things for the local children in Bradley Stoke – the playground being the most pressing issue, as it’s in a dire state at the moment! So my idea was to write about the training races and generally how things are going and if you enjoy reading this, please put something towards the Friends of Bowsland Green. I would like to reassure you that I have personally paid for my season pass and any money you donate goes directly to them. The races I have planned are:Ultra Tour of Arran (2 days, 100km total) – 13th – 14th April 2019 Rat Race Dirty Weekend (32km) – 11th May 2019 Runstock (5km laps) – 8th June 2019 The Wall (26 hours, 110km) – 15th June 2019 Man vs Coast (37km) – 6th July 2019 Man vs Lakes (47km) – 20th July 2019 Man vs Mountain (32km) – 7th September 2019 Ultra Tour of Edinburgh (57km) – 20th October 2019 Hell Down South (21km) – 26th October 2019 This is an incredible year of running and in the mix are 3 ultra distance races. I cannot promise to definitely finish but if you wanted to know what is happening and all about these adventures then follow this page and I will update it. Your support will definitely motivate me!

Healing Paws Animal Rescue

Sue spends every moment of her spare time rescuing these poor animals from a terrible fate and welcomes them into the comfort of her home. Sadly there is no funding from any government sources in Zakynthos, and most cats and dogs lead a very short and miserable existence. Puppies and kittens are often found discarded in the rubbish simply abandoned, and many dogs suffer abuse by being chained and, in some cases, starved.Sue and her volunteers nurse the animals back to health and pay for all their veterinary needs, their general upkeep and then finds them a home where they can enjoy the love and companionship that they deserve.Healing Paws is a registered non profit organisation in Greece and a Registered UK charity in England and Wales.

The Ashley Scrivens Foundation

The Ashley Scrivens Foundation is a grant making trust set up to support and promote the development of youth sport within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, with a forward giving philosophy to extend the impact of the grants that we make.Established in 2014 in the memory of Ashley Scrivens, we strive to carry forward Ashley’s legacy of developing youth sport, and his immense generosity in terms of giving back to those that helped him or are less fortunate than himself.TASF differs slightly from the usual trust, by the way that we ask the recipients of our grants to give something forward to their community in return. This can be anything that the recipient chooses, but has to fulfil our criteria of helping their community, and is proportional to the size of grant given. We believe that not only does this make the money we give work harder and draw communities together, but also carries forward Ashley’s legacy of forward givingWe run several fundraising events over the course of the year, as well as people fundraising for us, and then meet as a board of trustees every quarter to vote upon which projects we can support. We invite organisations, such as clubs, societies, schools, youth clubs etc to apply to us for a grant to either wholly or partly fund a project that fits with our criteria.As a part of the application, we’ll ask the applicant to outline how they are planning to give forward, outside of their normal activities. If the applicant is unsure, we are happy to give ideas and/or align them with local charities or social enterprises that could use their help. Preference will be given, however, to organisations who have given thought as to how they’d like to give forward.Our ultimate aim is to make sport accessible to all under-18’s within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, agnostic to ability, type of sport or demographic. We do this by making grants for specific projects and initiatives that are aimed at increasing the participation level in, and/or improve the quality of sport within our geographical reach.

Invest in ME Research

Invest in ME Research is an independent UK charity finding, funding and facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME or ME/CFS) and promoting better education about ME in order to raise awareness of the effects of the disease on patients and families.Invest in ME Research is run by volunteers - patients or parents of children with ME - with no paid staff.Overheads are kept to a minimum to enable all funds raised to go to promoting education of, and facilitating and funding biomedical research into, ME.The charity believes that biomedical research into ME is crucial in order to make progress in treating this disease. We also believe that education of healthcare staff, the media, government departments, patient groups and patients is to be a priority.We are a small charity but with supporters who have big hearts - and a determination to get the best possible research to be carried out to find the cause of ME and develop treatments.We have links nationwide and also internationally.Invest in ME Research is a founder member of the European ME Alliance (EMEA), a collaboration of European national charities and organisations.The charity was also responsible for initiating the European ME Research Group (EMERG) concept, a collaboration of European researchers from major institutes.Recently, the charity was has initiated the European ME Clinicians Council (EMECC), a network of European clinicians who will work together and share experiences of treating ME in order to establish better standards for patient care.The charity does not receive, and has never received funding from government or government organisations.We believe that we need a national strategy of biomedical research into ME to produce treatments and cures for this illness.We have always believed that the seriousness of the situation regarding ME makes it necessary for governments to provide "ring-fenced" funding for biomedical research in to ME (as was provided for HIV/AIDS) in order to address the need for development of diagnostic tests and remedial treatments. However, the charity does not believe in merely asking for funding - the charity has pursued of policy of raising funds itself for biomedical research in order to fund research at top UK institutes. We believe that clinicians should standardise on usage of the most up-to-date criteria (currently we emphasise the Canadian Criteria) for diagnosis so that there is an agreed basis (noting that evolutionary improvement would be welcomed).The charity organises an annual research Colloquium and conference regularly attracting delegates from over 15 countries and funds research at Quadram Institute Bioscience/University of East Anglia and University College London as well as influencing collaboration elsewhere, in UK, Europe and beyond.Our conferences and colloquiums were organised from the beginning in order to provide a platform for research and a means of facilitating education about ME.In order to bring the best education and research to bear on ME and to find and facilitate the best strategy of research into this disease the charity welcomes support for our work.Our aim is to fund and facilitate research in order to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME. We hope this will lead to the development of a universal diagnostic test(s) that can confirm the presence of ME and, subsequently, medical treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illnessOur efforts are focused on setting up a UK/European Centre of Excellence for ME which will provide proper examinations and diagnosis for ME patients and a coordinated strategy of biomedical research into ME in order to find treatment(s) and cure(s).

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
