Dedicated greyhound lover Daren Johnson will be taking on the Virgin Money London Marathon this April to raise much-needed funds for the Retired Greyhound Trust.
Daren is one of the Trust's biggest supporters and has already raised £83,000 for retired greyhounds through his "Give a Bit Back" fundraising events, which have included a running and cycling event from John O'Groats to Land's End and golf days at the prestigious London Club. By running the London Marathon, Daren hopes to reach his total fundraising target of £100,000.
He said: "I'm proud to be representing the Retired Greyhound Trust in the London Marathon and have been training hard for the last few months. Greyhounds are such great dogs and really deserve to enjoy their retirements in loving homes, and I'm always looking for new ways to fundraise for the RGT so that they can help as many greyhounds as possible. I'd love to take my "Give a Bit Back" fundraising total over £100,000, so please dig deep and donate to my JustGiving page!".
