Dr Bill Warburton tells us why he ran the Winchester Half Marathon
All my fund raising is for Alzheimers Society. This is in memory of my mum who died of Alzheimer's in 2011 after living with it for eight pretty heart-breaking years. I do the Great South Run each year and they have a tie-in with registered charities such as Alzheimer's Society and it’s a simple matter to point my 'just giving' account at the current GSR site – people who sponsor me tend to go that route, just because it's easy for them. I did your event for the first time this year, but it does not, as far as I can see, have a similar arrangement so I tried raising funds on paper – but I’ve only got pledges for about £50 that way for the Winchester Half Marathon so far.
