Running for Syria

I run for Syria. I ran the Madrid Marathon already, somehow, to raise money for medical supplies and aid for the country. It was quite easily the worst thing I've ever experienced in my life. But we raised €2,700 for MSF in Syria.
Now I've signed up for the Dublin Marathon on October 29 because they still need help. Every euro raised makes a huge difference to people affected by the fighting in Syria, people pretty much ignored by the world.
That’s why I’m running. It's not easy, but I've got support from my little buddy (pictured beside me to the right), who encourages me in training by cycling beside me and shouting at me to go faster. He's great, a brilliant kid who has every opportunity open to him because he isn't living in a warzone. He and I both know there are other kids who aren't as fortunate. They do not deserve a blind eye. 
MSF do incredible work, awe-inspiring, humbling. Many doctors and first responders have literally given their lives to do the work they do. Yet they don’t give up. And neither will I.
I'll run and I hope you’ll donate to make it worthwhile. Thank you!
