The Professional Drivers Foundation is approaching its fourth year and we now have no doubt whatsoever that there is a need for a lorry driverís charity.

Almost all the funds we have raised have been donated from lorry drivers and their families to help colleagues in need. Last year in particular, we found ourselves in demand more than ever before. This has left our funds extremely low.

In response to our appeal for individuals to raise funds by completing sponsored events, Steve Jackson has stepped forward to quite literally ĎRun the Gauntletí for the Professional Drivers Foundation!
Steve Jackson is Brettís Logistics Planning Manager, and being desk based, is making a super human effort on behalf of the PDF.
Steve used to be a lorry driver many moons ago, and itís still a vocation dear to his heart.
In view of this he is preparing to step out from behind his desk and hit the road not once, but twice and run TWO Half Marathons for the PDF.
His first challenge will be to complete the Great North Run in September, followed by the infamous Run the Gauntlet event, and held in Ireland in November.
Run the Gauntlet is widely acknowledged as Irelandís toughest half marathon due to the elevation changes on the course through The Gap of Dunloe between the beautiful Lakes of Killarney.

Visit Steveís page at http://www.justgiving.com/stevejackson2012

For more information and to encourage Steve to train on a daily basis, please sponsor him and encourage him to make the supreme effort required to complete these two events.

He needs to see his efforts will be worthwhile.
The amount you can afford isnít important as every little helps to encourage Steve to turn out and train on a daily basis. It is essential for him to see that target rising every cold and dreary day he pounds the local roads in an effort to get super fit.

Remember, every penny goes to support lorry drivers in need of help.

I'm guessing Vanessa is Steve's other half/administrator and training manager?

Good Luck to Steve. The Irish one sounds particularly tough! Shocked

HeHe! I reckon running the gauntlet on here is worse than the other Very Happy

I wonder if Steve and Vanessa know what they have let themselves in for. Still, if we are paying we may as well have some fun about it. Poor Steve Crying or Very sad Wink
