Danny How13in13 Challenge

13 in 13

As part of the fundraising plan, Daniel Lewi and his friend Danny How have set themselves a huge challenge in honour of Daniel’s daughter Amélie who is suffering from Tay-Sachs.

The challenge

13 in 13 stands for them both running 13 marathons in 13 months and they hope that this effort and dedication to Amélie will help raise much needed funds for the research to cure Tay-Sachs.

Daniel and Danny will complete 1 marathon per month starting in October 2011 and will be joined by a variety of friends on each event.

How to donate

For this challenge we ask people to dig in their pockets as deep as they can. Donating as little as £10.00/per month will take our fundraising a long way and will only mean one cocktail less a month for the donor… And if forgetting is a worry, a standing order to THE CATS FOUNDATION is the best way forward.

You can sponsor us for the 13 in 13 challenge through any of the options below.

Your support is very much appreciated!

    Just a little update – Danny and I have signed up for the first few marathons so the challenge is most definitely on!

    We already have one more person running the Brentwood marathon with us, anyone else interested in doing it and raising money for the CATS Foundation?
