From dedicated smoker to committed runner, Danny is taking on the Birmingham Half-Marathon this Sunday! His step-son, Sam, has Marfan syndrome and Danny is raising funds and awareness for a happy & healthy Marfan future.

I'm running my first ever half-marathon to raise money for Marfan Trust, a charity that's very close to us as a family. There are 18,000 people in the UK with Marfan Syndrome including our Sam. It's a condition that affects people in so many cruel ways and if me running half a marathon helps in any way, I'm glad to do it. I'm running this for Sam, as he's had so much to put up with his throughout his life, but just gets on with things with a strength and determination that I could never do. So if you can spare a quid or two (or 500) then please donate, as this is a really bloody cruel disease.

Incidentally, Sam was the second beneficiary of the Thoracoflo™ aortic graft in the United Kingdom and is recovering well from the operation.
