Caitlin's Pride - Running for MDS

WP_20150721_015Caitlin Limmer is off again - for a new running challenge for MDS UK.

This time though - she'll be seen running the hills of Surrey countryside as a London Pride bottle - on the 13th September 2015.

Fuller's Brewery, who also support her Bearcats Running Club have kindly offered to sponsor her - if she ran inside their giant London Pride bottle.
Caitlin need not be asked twice....and has set out a fantastic training agenda - running from pub to pub in preparation for the big day.

As she has fundraised so much this year already, the main purpose of this marathon is to raise awareness of the MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES, a rare blood cancer - thanks to the London Pride bottle publicity - but if you'd like to spare a few pounds - here is the Virgin Money Giving link:

virginCaitlin's Pride - Running for MDS

Thank you CAITLIN - and Fuller's - for this new opportunity to talk about MDS and blood cancer.

Pub owners in the London or Surrey area:
If you are a Fuller's pub - and would like to support our MDS awareness campaign, please get in touch with us.
mds-uk@mds-foundation.org or ring 02077337558.
We aim to raise awareness of this rare blood cancer, explain the importance of blood donations and stem cell donations to save lives of MDS patients and other blood cancers.
We'd be grateful for all pub visitors to take 5 minutes of their time to read and hear about what they can do to help - whilst enjoying some London Pride - in moderation!

Here is Caitlin's message:

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW MDS PATIENT SUPPORT GROUP IS A CHARITY CLOSE TO MY HEART AT KINGS HOSPITAL IN DENMARK HILL, LONDON.

I HAD ORIGINALLY SET OUT TO RUN THE BACCHUS MARATHON TO THANK FULLERS FOR ALL THEY DO FOR MY RUNNING CLUB, THE BEARCAT RUNNING CLUB AND MY RACE, THE TURKS HEAD 10K, BUT THEY HAVE TURNED THE TABLES ON ME AND SAID THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SPONSOR ME.  HAVING BEEN OUT TRAINING IN THE BOTTLE SEVERAL TIMES NOW, ONCE ON A 10 MILER IN THE HARRY HAWKES 10 RACE LAST SUNDAY, A COUPLE OF LOCAL TRAINING RUNS AND ALSO A BIG TRAINING RUN SEEING THE SITES IN LONDON I REALISE I AM CONTINUOUSLY BEING ASKED WHO PEOPLE CAN DONATE TO.

PLEASE DO NOT FEEL OBLIGED, AS I HAVE ALREADY RAISED MONEY THIS YEAR FOR THE BRIGHTON MARATHON, IT REALLY WASN'T MY INTENTION TO RAISE MORE MONEY BUT THE BOTTLE SEEMS TO HAVE A STORY/LIFE/NEED OF ITS OWN!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT, BOTH FINANCIALLY AND FOR ALL THE GREAT COMMENTS I AM HEARING CONSTANTLY, I FEEL LIKE A CELEBRITY!!
