Martin and Rob’s FOUR half marathons!

Martin and Rob are two guys on a mission, they have decided to do not one but FOUR half marathons for Kicks Count this year! Sadly, both men have experienced miscarriages and stillbirths in their family so they both wanted to raise awareness and funds for Kicks Count so we can reduce the number of babies born sleeping every day, which is currently 16 babies every day.

They hoped to raise £500 by October but with 5 months to go, they have already raised £512! You can sponsor the boys on their JustGiving page, they will certainly need the motivation to complete their next three half marathons!

Martin and Rob would like to say a big thank you to their wives who have supported them with their training and also cheered them on at their first half marathon. They are also very grateful to everyone who has donated to their page and a special thank you goes to the Linden Tree in Swansea (where Martin works) and the Bryncoch Inn in Neath (Rob works here) who have had collection tins on their bars and also raised funds at events such as a family fun day!

Their first half marathon was Leeds on 8 May, they now face the Swansea Half Marathon on 26 June, the Wales Half Marathon in Tenby on 10 July and then finally the Cardiff Half Marathon on 2 October. Entry to all three half marathons are still open, so if you want to join Rob and Martin on either of these, please sign up today!

Alternatively, you can sign up for any local run and raise funds for Kicks Count. Just drop us an email at fundraising@kickscount.org.uk or complete our online registration form.

Good luck to Martin and Rob for the rest of their half marathons!
