Ian Kennett runs the Marathon Des Sables for Walking with the Wounded

Archives

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADear All,

It is just 7 days until the start of the 30th Marathon Des Sables – a mere 250km in 6 days across the Moroccan Sahara and I am running as part of the Walking with the Wounded team alongside two wounded servicemen.

This is an amazing charity which supports our injured service personnel, funding their retraining and re-skilling to assist them in finding careers outside the military. Money raised from the MDS will specifically go to the funding of the Head Start programme, addressing the increasing needs of our ex-service personnel suffering with mental injuries.

Thank you to all of you who have so kindly donated, both personally and through your companies with various gifts including concert and sports tickets which have been auctioned for the charity. You have all been amazingly generous and if you haven’t got round to donating yet and would like to, you can do so here.

I am competitor number 121 and you can follow my progress on the MDS website www.marathondessables.com

Thanks once again for your support, oh and did I mention that I will be warming down by running the London Marathon on the 26th April as well.

Best Regards
Ian Kennett
