Gary ONeill Having decided to run a marathon this year I came across the Brathay Windermere Marathon. Initially I didn't plan on fundraising but the more I look at the work they do the more I find I want to help support it. My time in the scouts growing up, especially weekends camping, defined much of my personality and attitudes to life. I think we should offer as many disadvantaged children as possible the opportunity to experience the outdoors through the residential courses that Brathay offers. Any money you can donate will go towards improving their lives in a significant way.

As a bonus if the total passes £175 I will donate the value of my entry fee (£40) on top. For more information on the work the brathay trust do go to: Gary ONeill
