The cancellation, or postponement, of mass events in 2020 has been a necessary response to the Covid 19 pandemic but it has also led to the loss of much needed fundraising for UK charities.

That is why when the Milton Keynes half marathon was postponed in May David decided that his training, and fundraising, must go on. With the rearranged date being 6th September, and continued uncertainty as to whether it will go ahead then, David pledged to run the half marathon distance (13.1 miles) every month until the event takes place.

The charity he is supporting, Willen Hospice, provides care to patients with life limiting illnesses in his hometown of Milton Keynes and is a charity close to his heart. Alongside Hospices all over the country it provides its support services free to families but needs to raise £4.7 million every year to keep going.

At the time of writing, June 2020, David has completed two half marathons, with another two to go, before the planned event in September.
