Support a Fellow Geek: Iz’s Long Walk – Stonehenge to Avebury Trekathon

Iz McAuliffe, my former podcast partner, good friend and  ace comic con organiser and all round nice person  has launched a campaign to raise money for the Stroke Association  by trekking 26 miles.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My Pops would have been 70 last year and I wanted to celebrate that AND raise money for the awesome Stroke Association. We lost him in 2010 to a stroke when he was just 66, so I want to do something to help try and save someone else’s dad by raising money for the SA to research more into causes and preventions of stroke.

I wasn’t fit enough to do anything big last year, so better late than never, I’m doing a HUGE trek across part of Wiltshire in 2014, on his birthday 🙂

As I have a rather aggressive form of psoriatic arthritis I’m limited to what i can do, so this trek will really challenge me and it will mean a LOT to be able to complete the course and know I’ve raised money for a really great charity.

The Stroke Association do amazing work with research and support of stroke survivors, and I’d like to help them continue to do so.

I’m mid-way through training, and I’m confident i will be trek-ready in time (albeit a breathless, shaky and wibbly version).

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

It’s a fantastic cause Iz is supporting and I think us geeks can do our part to help her hit her goal of £1000. So dive into those pennies people and head over to I’z just giving website and if you can’t donate just spread the word.

Best of luck to Iz!!!
