Next year I'm running in the London Marathon to raise money for the wonderful charity, Scope. With a stated aim to make Britain a country where disabled people have the same opportunities as everybody else, they work hard to provide support, information and advice to disabled people and their families, in order to make their lives a little bit easier.
I'm fundraising, and you can help by sponsoring me in my effort to run 26.2 miles next April (it's a REALLY long way). And if doing a good deed wasn't enough, I'm offering a couple on incentives:
- The person who makes the biggest donation via my sponsorship page will get their very own portrait shoot, carried out by me (as long as they live in the UK).
- One of my sponsors will be chosen at random to receive a signed print of their choice from my portfolio. It could be you!
I'm also starting a new charity photo series. Each month, in the run-up to the marathon, I'll be shooting a new, sport-related image. When the marathon's done, prints will be auctioned off to help me top up my fundraising and reach my goal.
This is the first picture from the series, of my flatmate Laura jogging around Alexandra Palace. I hope you like it, and I also hope you will dig deep and sponsor my marathon effort at: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ChrisBrock1
