We are excited to announce that 15 supporters and staff members will be running the Brighton marathon to raise funds for Justlife.A marathon is not an easy feat and with at least 16 weeks of training for each runner the new year is starting with gruelling runs in the wind and rain. We are extremely grateful for the team putting in the hours and miles before the marathon, as well as the challenge itself.The dream team includes Gary Bishop, Alex Rose, Alison Roberts, Nathan Betteridge, Chick Yuill, Lloyd Kinsley, Graham Boxall, Chris Neilson, Gary Macaulay, Matt Williams, Matthew Smith, John Bird, Tony Smith, Ed Cox and Andrew Little.Ed Cox shared why he is running for Justlife: "I've just been to the Justlife Christmas party and seen exactly how really vulnerable men and women's lives are being turned around by the support they receive from such a talented team of staff and volunteers. Hot food, healthcare, homes, happy faces."HOW CAN YOU HELP:1. Cheer us on... The Brighton marathon is on Sunday 14th April 2013. Come down and cheer on the team (details to follow).2. Sponsor us... We are aiming to raise £10,000 for Justlife, which will make a big difference. Each runner is setting up a Justgiving page.
