Sponsor me to run the London marathon (almost) barefoot

I will be running in this year’s London Marathon, and to be honest, I’ve left the fundraising quite late.

I am running to raise money for the NSPCC, which is a fantastic charity that does great work.

This is my first marathon, although I’ve run 2 half marathon’s previously. As if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, I’ll be running it barefoot…. sort of.

Instead of running in cushioned trainers, I will be running the marathon in minimalist footwear that does little more than stop my feet getting cut on sharp stones.

I am looking to reach a sponsorship goal of £2,000 so please sponsor me anything you can spare.

To sponsor me, please visit http://keef.me/barefoot-sponsor or you can text KEEF55 and an amount to 70070. For example, sending the following text:

KEEF55 £10 to 70070 would sponsor me for £10 and be much appreciated.
