Hi,


I just wanted to remind everyone (and newcomers who may not know of his previous exploits) that our very own Kevin (iRun) is about to face his greatest challenge (in addition to his fight against PCa).


In April he is due to take part in the World's toughest race, the Marathon Des Sables to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. This involves running the equivalent of five and a half marathons in 5/6 days across the Desert in temperatures up to 50 degrees C. a fantastic achievement for anyone without health problems, but Kevin (as many of you know) has incurable PCa.


I think we should all make a special effort to support Kevin as he faces his ultimate challenge.


Kevin has a Just Giving Page: www.justgiving.com/Kevin-Webber4 Lets help Kevin reach his fundraising target!


If anyone wants to find out what Kevin faces: https://www.facebook.com/MarathonDesSables/videos/1239955846017013/


Good Luck, Kev!

Yes indeed Kevin, very good luck with the run. I get out of puff walking quickly up to my car from my house, puts me well and truly to shame

Thank you all for your good wishes. Today as my last warm up I walked with Jeff Stelling ( sky sports football show host) 26.2 miles from Wimbledon to Wembley. What a great day, all to raise funds for prostate cancer whose website here we all enjoy not to mention all the other great things they do. Along the walk I spoke at length with football legends such as Matt le tissier, Les Ferdinand, mark bright, Denis wise, Gareth aimsworth to mention just a few. They had all given their time to help our cause. When we got to Wembley they confirmed we had raised over £300,000!
Am home now with a massive smile, still buzzing and just 10 days to go to my big desert challenge.
I will post a link here later for people to track me running accross the Sahara if you feel the need, you can also use that site to email me any encouragement ( or abuse!!!) that will get printed off and handed to me each day.
Thanks again for all your support, I hope many sufferers of this terrible disease use me as evidence that even if you are metastatic you can still do so much.
Kev

Hi Kevin,


Well Done, what a great way of getting a bit more mileage in, even if you were walking. 


Sounds as if you had a really interesting day, meeting all those players.  I wish I could have joined in too, but I think I would have struggled.


Make sure you get plenty of rest in the next 10 days as well as exercise.


Take Care.


Steve
