Marathon Man

2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year as we prepare to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It's going to be an exciting year for Erica's dad, Simon, too as he prepares to run the London Marathon for psds!

We are really delighted that a number of our members put themselves forward to run the Marathon on our behalf. All names were entered in to a draw which took place at our trustee meeting on 2nd November. We only wish that we could have given everyone a place, but unfortunately that just wasn't possible.

Speaking after the name draw, psds Chairman Rick said, "We had great interest in the place that we secured through the charities ballot. It's fantastic that a number of our members said they would like to run the London Marathon for psds and a shame that we only had one place up for grabs. But I am delighted to wish Simon all the best in his training. I hope everyone will get behind Simon to support him and cheer him on!"

Simon's reaction? "I'm really excited to have the opportunity to take part in the 2016 London Marathon and honoured to be representing psds.  The training starts tomorrow !"

Good luck Simon and thanks to everyone who put themselves forward for the draw. You can read more about Simon's story here:
