Run for their Lives

My wife has started training for a 10km run planned for July 11th in London. She's raising money for War Child and her target is both modest and ambitious. My job involves no running... I get tired driving 10km! So I opted for the very important and extremely stressful task of PR. In fact I think I'm doing all the work here... This post is therefore a request for donations from you: my dear readers.

The minimum donation is £2 - which is presumably to cover the transaction costs.  Donating online is easy, safe and secure.  It should not take you more than 5 minutes.  All major credit cards are accepted - as well as PayPal. Please give what you can.  Even tiny donations will help - please don't hesitate.

Click here for more information, and indeed to make a donation. Good luck, Noreen, and thank you everyone.

Update 26 September 2010: Just remembered to close the loop on this... I have pleasure in confirming that Noreen did the 10k run in full, with a good time, and she reached (in fact exceeded) her 1500 pound target for charity.

Great shot - I like how you chose to focus on the shoe in the background of the image.

Last date is 10th July. Please don't feel obliged to give a large donation. A small contribution will be enough :)

Thank you. I wanted to focus on the front step.

I hope she prepares well for the event, I'm still nursing my sprained ligament from last month's NBK walkathon. I wish her all the best.
ps. nice low level shot! G11?

She's preparing as well as possible with a full-time job and two kids... I hope she is!

The lens on the G11 is good - but not this good :) This is on the D300 with the 50mm.
