Alistair Stokes is fundraising for the Spinal Injuries Association by running the Vienna Marathon

24 March 2017

I am delighted that Roll on Friday have given me permission to write a short blog about my fundraising for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA).

I’m running the Vienna Marathon on 23.04.2017 on behalf of the SIA
and I would be grateful for your kind support.

My fundraising page is:

You’ll no doubt be aware that JustGiving sends donations straight to the Spinal Injuries Association and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if the donor is a UK taxpayer, so the donation is worth even more.

You are probably wondering why I’m running for the SIA?

I'm running for the SIA because I am a solicitor who, over the past 9 years, has worked with many people who have suffered spinal injuries.

I have seen first hand the devastating effect that a spinal injury can intially have and just how much medical treatment, rehab, pain management, and psychological support is needed following an injury.

I recognise how much care and assistance  is needed, with day to day living, as well as the shere volume of equipment and aids that have to be purchased following a spinal injury.

I know the remarkable stories of those I have worked with who, with invaluable support  and unshakeable fortitude, have learnt to overcome Spinal Injuries.

I hope that by running the Vienna marathon I can help , in a small way , to contribute to the SIA and the vital work it does.

The SIA and I would be most grateful for your kind support.

Many thanks and Best Wishes

Alistair  Stokes
