A first time marathon runner, Maryanne Adams, is running her first marathon to raise much needed funds for ISWAN. Maryanne aims to raise £1000 to support the work that ISWAN does to help seafarers. Maryanne is fundraising through the Seafarers UK's Justgiving page as they currently fund SeafarerHelp, ISWAN's 24/7 free helpline for seafarers.
Roger Harris, Executive Director of ISWAN, said "We deeply appreciate Maryanne's fundraising by running the Brighton marathon. I know from experience, that it is not an easy task – especially when you get to 20 miles! Everyone at ISWAN wishes her all the best."
Maryanne will be running the Brighton Marathon on the south coast of England on Sunday 6 April. If you would like to sponsor Maryanne then please go to her fundraising page at https://www.justgiving.com/Maryanne-Adams. Donations can be made from outside the UK.
Donations can also be made by text - text MADS60 £5 to 70070.
