Rick Sherman - London Marathon 2020
I'm Rick Sherman, born and bred in Leeds. This will be my 6th marathon (the 3rd for LJWB). Although I was one of the lucky ones to get a ballot place, I still want to raise as much money as possible for LJWB so they can continue to provide the support that people rely upon.
The staff and volunteers do so much to enrich local people's lives in so many ways and I am honoured to be able to run for them.
Although I love running, it involves a great deal of sacrifice and pain just to be able to get to the start line - a lot of dark, cold mornings and evenings have been spent pounding the streets of Alwoodley.
So if you appreciate those sacrifices and donate generously then it will make it all worthwhile!
