A FATHER of four is getting his campaign going to raise £2,000 for a disabled children’s charity.
Jason Scrivens, 40, who lives in Arundel Mill Lane, Stroud, is running the Stroud half marathon for the on Sunday as a warm up to the London Marathon in April.
“For the last two years of running the Stroud half marathon I have raised money for Children with Cancer however after watching last year’s Paralympic games I was inspired to raise money for the charity Get Kids Going,” said Jason, who plays football for Slimbridge FC and coaches the Forest Green Rovers U12s team.
“Although my big event is the London marathon next year I am going to take the opportunity at the Stroud half marathon to start my fundraising.”
Get Kids Going supply equipment to disabled children and young people to assist them in playing sports at amateur and Paralympic levels.
“During the race on Sunday I will be running with a collection box hung around my neck so I can collect money along the route,” said Jason, who works as a regional sales manager for window company Victorian Sliders.
“I am also hoping that some local businesses will sponsor me to help me reach my £2,000 target by next April.”
