I currently live in North Wales with my wife and boys (10 & 7yrs). I work as a Visual Producer for a large company in the UK and also I'm part of the leadership team for Alive Church in Prestatyn.

Last year (2017) my wife ran the half marathon in Rwanda and on her return sign me up to do the full marathon in Kenya the following year saying: "You need a new challenge!" I've always played sport but have never been a massive runner so this is a real challenge. We've for many years sponsored children through compassion and felt this was a fantastic challenge to raise the awareness of compassion and get some more children sponsored.
