Speedy Neurons Make a Run for IT

Adrian Fowle's picture

Dear Friends and Colleagues

I run this website for the love of our specialty and a passion for IT, at some cost in both time and quids. I have avoided commercial sponsorship and I would not dream of taking money for it personally.

HOWEVER

My department's new Lead Clinical Physiologist, Sandra Chinyere, has entered us for a charity run in aid of Epilepsy Action. I would be really grateful if you could express your appreciation for this site by contributing at the fund raising page that Sandra has set up:

I hate asking, but a small contribution each would make a huge difference

The small print: When I say "entered us", it is of course the bright young things in our department who are running -  my running days are over and I am reduced to acting in support. We are grateful to Optima Medical who have paid the entrance fees, and they are also providing their own team of runners.

It seems Sandra has a gift for these things - You can see what she has done for Purple Day and had me doing too. Thank you for supporting her efforts.

and a food festival

The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes place this Sunday. Optima are putting up a team of runners and have sponsored several physiologists too. Four of my colleagues are running, as is Nick Kane and I believe there are others. It's all in aid of Epilepsy, which apparently we see in our departments.

If you have not  done so, please consider supporting them through the charity page which Sandra has set up. If you live within striking distance of London there is a food festival in association with the event, so come and cheer them on!

Thanks

Dear Marie-Loiuse and Rachel

Thank you so much for your contributions, and ML for your comments too.

Thanks also to Shinto and Liju, the non-running members of the home team for your contirbutions, and as always, your support.

Speedy neurons

A truly worthy cause. I am very inspired by Sandra's efforts and of course very grateful for this site. I have no doubts you guys will soon reach your target.

We're on the way

Thank you very much Abena - I think many people who have worked with Sandra previously will recognise her vitality!

Thank you to Alex and Joseph too.

Good of you to get this up

Good of you to get this up and trending Adrian, as well as Sandra and her Neurons running for such a worthy cause close to all our hearts. I'll be putting in a shift for the 'old codgers' whilst other Ronit's are available to sponsor; so huge thanks to all at Optima who have made this possible by their generous support.

All the best,

Nick Kane.

Other runners

Nick

Thank you so much for your contribution, especially if you are also running. Of course I want to support my home team, which is why I have so shamelessly attempted to blackmail you all. I should be delighted to highlight the sponsorship pages of others running in the same cause.

There is a food festival being held around the finish line. Hopefully some of the profits from that go to the charities and I can contribute in that way. I was told some years ago to stop pounding my lateral menisci on the pavement and keep them for hill walking :(
