AGI-Shorewood Hammersmith, UK has put together a running squad that has been putting themselves through vigorous training; running for buses, running to the bar when time is called, running to the local kebab shop, generally walking a little faster than normal pace... This is all in order to get into shape for the Bupa London 10k on May 27 to raise money for the Jeans for Genes charity.
The run is a huge challenge for the AGI-Shorewood Team but it's for a great cause so please join D2D and make the pain worthwhile by digging deep and donating online now.
Jeans for Genes is a charity that aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK – that's more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under. The Bupa London 10k is presented by the London Marathon and is run on the course likely to be used for the 2012 Olympic Marathons.
