exhausted runner


SKULD’S Bernt Hellman set himself the challenge of running 5 marathons before turning 45. He failed.

But we can’t give him too hard a time as he will run number five in Chicago on October 7th, just one month after his 45th birthday, in support of JDRF who do “fantastic, urgent and important work to fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes”.

Bernt did number one in London in 2007 and says he needs our support now since this may be his last as his legs are getting “older, shorter and more importantly slower”. If you would like to support JDRF by sponsoring an old, short and slow man, then visit his justgiving page.

As they say, every little helps! So, even if you are thinking “oh no, not another sponsorship request” bear in mind that you probably won’t even miss twenty greenbacks but it all adds up!
