Virgin Balloon Flights
have a speedy runner set to take on the 26.2 mile world famous challenge on April 22nd
this year, all in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Adam Fleetwood, freelance creative designer to Virgin Balloon Flights
jumped at the chance of applying for one of Virgin Unite’s London Marathon
places late last year. After some careful consideration of how to win over the votes at Virgin, Adam put together a short movie, which you can watch on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sx2UjRQyeI
After being granted a place (yippee), Adam set his mind to training, fundraising and a bit of blogging along the way to keep us all up to date with what he’s doing. There are a number of blogs up already, just click the image below to take you to the page and find out what’s been going on.
