Most people associate running a marathon with blisters and sore feet, but for a commercial manager in Nottinghamshire, running the London Marathon will have a much greater effect for a worthy cause.
Daniel Gillert, of used cooking oil recycling company Living Fuels, hopes to raise over £500 for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, a charity that funds research into muscular dystrophy and provides care and support to sufferers of muscle diseases. Daniel is also aiming to raise over £1,000 for family friend Ethan, a six year old boy who has been affected by the disease.
“The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign does fantastic work in the field of muscle disease and are a more than worthy cause to run a marathon for” said Gillert, “Many of the people affected by muscular dystrophy will never be able to walk or run, which is why I feel privileged to be able to complete an event such as the London Marathon.”
