On October 5, I am running the St. George Marathon down a mountain in Utah (solo, not with Paula Radcliffe, sadly) in support of the St. George's Society of New York.
The St. George's Society is a charity that means a lot to me, as many of you know, particularly their work supporting families living with paediatric cancer and people of British and Commonwealth descent who have fallen on hard times. I've seen up close the tremendous impact their work has on the people they help, and cannot recommend highly enough the siphoning of your hard-earned dollars into their good-doing hands. You can read more about their programs here.
I also couldn't resist the opportunity to do St. George for St. George's.
250 YEARS OF GIVING
Since our founding in 1770, St. George's Society of New York has dedicated itself to improving the lives of people in need, assisting thousands of individuals of British and Commonwealth descent in the New York area. Our charitable programs have a major impact on the local community by protecting the elderly at risk of homelessness, helping low-income students to attain a college degree and providing a support network for families affected by pediatric cancer. Whilst our assistance has taken many forms over the years, our fundamental purpose remains constant: we are people helping people.
