Three marathons in three days, on challenging terrain? It may be madness, but that’s what Robert Clarke is doing in aid of Jessie’s Fund. He has a novel way of asking for sponsorship: he asks people to sponsor a song, so with any donation supporters pick a song which he’ll add to his playlist for running to.
This is part of a long quest to work through an A – Z of marathons, and Rob’s picked Jessie’s Fund as his charity for the Jurassic Coast Challenge. He says: ‘Jessie’s fund – as well as being alphabetically suitable – does fantastic work with children with severe illness, complex needs and communication difficulties, through the therapeutic use of music, helping them to connect and interact with the world.’
