Ross Gilman: MARATHON MAN!

Ok here goes... I am now working as the Community Fundraiser for the Rose Road Association in Southampton and Im aiming to raise a minimum of £1,000 towards our Children's Appeal by running in the London Marathon in April.

Rose Road has been supporting children with complex disabilities in Hampshire and surrounding counties since 1952 and it really is a special place. The money I raise will support the Children's Appeal by providing more crucial short breaks for the young people and their families we support.

I have over 1,000 fantastic friends on facebook (not bragging!) and just over 100 followers on twitter. If everyone on twitter could donate £10 or if everyone on facebook gave £1 this would really help me reach my target.

Plus all those who donate will receive an email after the event with exclusive images of me both before and after the event so you can smile as I endure 26.4 miles of pain and exhaustion!

Thank you for very much for your support it means a great deal to me and to the young people and their families we support at Rose Road.
