Mark Ashworth is raising £1,500 for Crohn's and Colitis UK
UPDATE - 8th September 2014 We did it. Great day, great crowds. Lovely people at Crohn's and Colitis UK welcomed us. Thanks for all your fantastic donations. UPDATE #1 - 1st September 2014: Really sorry to say that Jonathan will not be running due to illness. Joe and Mark wish him a speedy recovery. UPDATE #2 - 1st September 2014: The fantastic donation from James and Marion Ashworth did not appear in our list due to a technical glitch, although I believe it is part of our total. So, I've changed our background picture to say thanks. Thanks! UPDATE 26th August 2014: Thanks to all so far for your amazing donations. We're sorry that some of you have found the site a bit tricky and have been unable to leave messages - we chose Givey because they are the best at getting as much money as possible to charity. We'd like to have thanked you all individually but will content ourselves with being blown away by your collective generosity. To reflect such superior collective beneficence, we've trebled our target to 1,500. -------------------------------------------- Thank you for visiting this fundraising page. Mark Ashworth and Harrisons, Joe and Jonathan, will be tackling the Great North Run on Sunday 7th September in aid of Crohn's and Colitis UK. We all appreciate that you probably receive numerous invitations from balding men the wrong side of 30 (or 40) asking you for money for one event or another. And you probably do your own thing for charities that are close to your heart as well. However, if you can see your way to donating something for this tough challenge then that would be marvellous and we would all be hugely grateful. Crohn's and Colitis are both a couple of real nasties, with more than 260,000 people affected in the UK alone. Mark was diagnosed with Colitis in 2012 and although his form is mild, and of late under control, he has at times been left in complete agony or in a state of deep fatigue. He also lost a lot of weight and has at times been hugely inconvenienced and embarrassed by the disease. Joe has family and friends who have suffered some of the severe effects of Crohn's and Colitis. For the uninitiated, The Great North Run is a half marathon, 13.1 miles, through the tough streets of Newcastle-upon-Tyne finishing in South Shields. It'll be blooming hard work.
